According to the president, if the deal goes through it could cause problems for Real Madrid. Laporta expects his comments to create a tense environment in the Real Madrid camp.

When asked if he envies Madrid, he replied: Not at all, not at all. Besides, I don’t know if they will or not. We will see.”

Laporta then highlighted the potential dilemma Real Madrid face in welcoming Mbappe and existing players like Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo, hinting at the need to offload personnel to accommodate the Frenchman.

Given the nature of his claim, he was asked if he had any information, but Laporta simply said: “No, I have intuition. This is where they have a problem. They have to sell a player (if Mbappé arrives), right? Because they are both not going to play in the same place and they are also very important players.

Furthermore, he expects Mbappé’s salary and bonuses to cause problems in the Real Madrid locker room:

“And talking about the numbers that will be there, that will distort the locker room, that’s for sure. It’s not a gift. »

These statements come a day after Barcelona sporting director Deco claimed Real Madrid. could face tactical problems to integrate Mbappe into their team.
