Ferland Mendy’s agent Yvan Le Mee claimed that the record European champions cannot afford Kylian Mbappe at the moment as they have no money to fund the transfer and his salary.

It is no secret that Mbappe is strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid after deciding not to renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain. The tension between the player and PSG has been growing ever since the latter informed the forward that he should either sign an extension or leave this summer itself.

In an interview with MARCA, however, Yvan Le Mee has revealed that despite the public interest, Madrid have no money to fund Mbappe’s transfer. More importantly, they cannot afford his extravagant wages as well.

“Will Mbappé go to Madrid this summer? Absolutely not. I’m close to Real Madrid, they have no money,” he said.

“Real Madrid currently has no money for Mbappe’s transfer. They cannot cope with his salary of €40 million net per year, plus the premium of €30 million net per year. He earns between €70 million to €75 million net, while Benzema earned €13 million,” he added.

Speaking during the same interview, the left-back’s representative also admitted that if Mbappe had a proper agent, he would have already been a Real Madrid player two years ago.

“I am convinced that if he (Kylian Mbappé) had had an agent at the time of the negotiations with Real Madrid two years ago, he would have gone to Real Madrid,” he explained.

At this moment, Real Madrid are said to be very cautious about the deal. While they are hopeful that they can sign the player this summer, they do not want to disrupt whatever peace is left between the forward and the Ligue 1 champions. Once there is an answer from the player’s front, the Merengues will make a move.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
