La Liga president Javier Tebas has broken his silence over the Kylian Mbappe – Real Madrid saga and given his verdict on the potential move. In an interview relayed by ESPN, he also talks about Erling Haaland and the possibility of his arrival in Spain.

Tebas was confident that Mbappe would not be Los Blancos’ only big signing in the summer and said Haaland could be on his way to the Bernabeu too.

“Madrid will get Mbappe and [Erling] Haaland as the others [Barcelona and Juventus] are half [financially] ruined.”

He then spoke about the impact of Mbappe’s arrival on the League and its global image.

“That Mbappe comes is great news for LaLiga. It would be a joy for La Liga. It’s the best thing that could happen to La Liga.”

After giving his verdict on the Frenchman’s future, Tebas revealed that he had no first-hand information on the player. His statements were purely his personal beliefs and had no backing: “I have no information regarding Mbappe.”

The La Liga president then explained the reason behind his conviction. Tebas talked about the PSG star’s refusal to renew at Paris and implied it was a clear indication that he wanted to leave.

“But I’ve seen few cases of players who have six months left on their contracts that have not renewed their contracts and then went on to continue at the club.”

Mbappe scored a last-minute goal in PSG recent clash against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. The second leg is scheduled for March 9th, and Ancelotti’s side have their work cut out for them.
