The reason why Kylian Mbappe turned down a move to Real Madrid has been revealed by an insider who spoke with France Football ahead of the mouth-watering clash between Los Blancos and the Le Parisians.

Mbappe opted for Paris Saint-Germain after being turned off by Real Madrid’s president attitude.

Mbappe wasn’t short of options after his last season exploits with AS Monaco after he championed them to the Champions League semi-finals and helped his former club to clinch the French Ligue 1 last season the wonder kid was the talk of the transfer market last summer.

And a source has revealed he chose PSG after being left unimpressed when meeting Perez.

The insider told France Football: "Let's say the Madrid president was a bit haughty. He arrived on the conquered ground. For him, the affair was going to settle quietly.

"Kylian had no agent and could not refuse Real Madrid But it's good knowing the family and Kylian. We did not force his hand. President Pérez was very surprised to be turned away by an eighteen-year-old."

Mbappe and Real Madrid target Neymar are expected to play against Real Madrid on Wednesday night in the Champions League round of 16 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
