Real Madrid President Florentino Perez Set To Resist Request Of French President Emmanuel Macron To Release Kylian Mbappe For The Olympics


Florentino Perez will reportedly not accede to the request of French President Emmanuel Macron to release Kylian Mbappe for the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics.

Mbappe has in recent months indicated his interest in being part of the Mundial, even though he will represent France at the 2024 European Championship.

Kylian Mbappe is expected to join Real Madrid this summer, and Los Blancos want him to get going quickly without any distractions whatsoever.

Mbappe is the face of French football and even by a stretch the face of sport in the European nation, and as such, Macron wants him to be a part of the Summer Olympics.

Real Madrid have apparently defined their position with Kylian Mbappe, maintaining that the attacker must choose between playing in the European Championship or at the Olympics.

Does Kylie Mbappe Want To Play At The 2024 Summer Olympics?

Mbappe wants to be part of both tournaments, as he aims for more international glory with France, having previously won the FIFA World Cup and UEFA Nations League.

Reports indicate that Real Madrid president, Perez, does not want to release the 25-year-old for the Olympics due to the influence Emmanuel Macron had in derailing Kylian Mbappe’s move to the Spanish side in 2022.

France will be banking on the brilliance of the AS Monaco man at the 2024 European Championship, with the country gunning for their 3rd title in history.

Definitely, Les Blues will have to battle through intense competition from several top nations if they are to win the competition.

France are also aiming to win their 2nd gold medal in football at the Olympics, having finished as runners-up in Paris in the 1900 edition.

They clinched gold in the 1984 Summer Olympics hosted by Los Angeles and certainly, there is no better time to pick up the gold medal than on home soil.

President Macron and Al Khelaifi Absent From Mbappe’s Farewell Party

Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe organized a farewell party on Monday, May 20, 2024, with several of his PSG teammates in attendance.

Some staff of Paris Saint Germain were also present, while his mother and agent Fayza Lamari alongside his father, Wilfred, attended the bash.

Younger brother Ethan was also at the farewell party, however, the president of France, Emmanuel Macron, and, Paris Saint Germain president Nasser Al Khelaifi weren’t present despite being invited.

Paris Saint Germain aren’t ready to lose Kylian Mbappe, but they cannot stop him from exiting the club this summer, with his contract set to expire on June 30, 2024.

Mbappe delineated brilliance all through his years at the Parc Des Princes, scoring 256 goals and providing 108 assists in 307 appearances.

The Frenchman is the all-time top scorer of the Ligue 1 side, and he has led the club to several trophies, including; 6 Ligue 1 titles, 3 Coupe de France, and 3 Trophée des Champions.

Internationally, Kylian Mbappe has made 77 appearances for France, scoring 46 goals and providing 31 assists across all competitions.
