« PSG is not an enemy club », assures Pérez
Guest of the Spanish media El Chiringuito, Florentino Pérez assured that PSG was not perceived by Real Madrid as an enemy. But the merengue president was still critical of clubs owned by states.
PSG and Real Madrid have had a chaotic relationship for several seasons. Between respectful postures between the two institutions and fierce battles on the ground and the transfer window. If the confrontations on the meadow have turned regularly to the advantage of the Merengue, the showdowns on the transfer market have most often been won by the champion club of France. In particular on the Mbappé file, retained by PSG in the summer of 2021 against his will to join Real, and which finally extended this summer with Paris. To the great displeasure of the people of Madrid who were waiting for him with open arms.
Perez wants to solve the club-state ‘problem’
Guest of the Spanish show The Chiringuito, Florentino Perez assured of his good feelings towards the Parisian club. « PSG is not an enemy. Neither Chelsea nor City. All those who compete with us are friends. We get on well with everyone, » assured the Madrid president.
Enough to ensure completely peaceful exchanges between the two clubs? Not sure. Because the rest of the speech of the Madrid president is less engaging. « Club-states are a problem that we have to solve, » Perez said in an unequivocal response to PSG.
