He said, "It is always beneficial when great players and great coaches come. What it does not mean, as I have read somewhere, is that audiovisual rights are going to increase.

"Whoever says that is unaware of the world of audiovisual rights. When figures arrive in a place they have to consolidate and there has to be a lot of work around them. There we have the example of Saudi Arabia, they have figures and their international audiovisual rights. I don't see that they have broken the market. That's not how the world of audiovisual rights works  at the national or international level."

Asked if Real will have issues registering Mbappe, Tebas continued: "No. I am not in the day-to-day financial control, but Real Madrid has an excellent economic situation, an excellent debt situation and does not have any problems. 

"What he earns at Real Madrid will be market-based, I'm sure. And I don't know what he's going to earn, because that's under financial control."
