Jesé repeats Mbappé told him he wanted to join Real (and tackles Macron in passing)

Former PSG striker Jesé reiterates that Kylian Mbappé had told him of his desire to sign for Real Madrid. And take the opportunity to tackle the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron and his role in the continuation of the young striker in Paris.

Jesé Rodriguez is being talked about again. More than two years after his official departure from PSG, the Spanish striker is once again evoking Kylian Mbappé’s former wishes. In an interview with Cadena Ser, he reiterates that his former partner had told him of his desire to join Real Madrid, as he already said in February 2021.

“I didn’t talk to him anymore, but it was clear to me because that’s what he told me,” says the Ankaragücü player about his Madrid dreams. He told me and I told other people: those who talk Spanish. I believe. it was more personal pressure than professional. All players make decisions, they can be wrong or accept the decision.”

“I think he felt more personal pressure than professional to make a decision”

Jesé also criticizes Emmanuel Macron and his role in extending Kylian Mbappé to PSG last summer for two years (plus an optional year). “People can’t intervene, he complains. For example, the French president can’t tell you ‘don’t go, you have to stay’. In my opinion, I think he felt more personal and professional pressure to make a decision . “

Last November, the Paris striker confirmed that the president had contacted him to urge him to stay in France. “He called me to tell me: ‘I know you want to leave,'” he confided to Sports Illustrated. I want to tell you that you are also important in France. I don’t want you to leave. You have opportunity to ‘make history here. Everybody loves you’. I said I appreciate it because it was really crazy. The president calls you and wants you to stay.”

“I’m not making the decision because he tells me to stay”

“I have a lot of respect for him, but I don’t make the decision because he tells me to stay, even if it is a parameter among others, the world champion had defended himself earlier on BFMTV. He gave me good advice.” He now has at least a year and a half left on his contract before he might finally get his wish.
