PSG president Al-Khelaifi rejects LaLiga complaints: With Mbappe Ligue 1 can be among best championships

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has dismissed complaints from Spain after securing Kylian Mbappe to a new contract.

Mbappe announced over the weekend that he would be rejecting long time suitors Real Madrid and penning a new deal with PSG.

The decision has led to threats from the LaLiga and Al-Khelaifi said: "We are not going to make the figures public, but the most important thing for Mbappé is the sports project.

"Kylian is the best player in the world. We decided we need him, so we waited to see what to do. Mbappé loves to win. That is important for our project.

On the comments of LaLiga president Javier Tebas, he continued: “I think our Ligue 1 president can answer this. We deserve respect. I have respect for all the clubs and for all the leagues. The League is not the same as it was three or four years ago.

"Respect is essential. It's not my business. It will be a question for the president of our league. I don't hear any of that, we have the best player in the world in our project.

"It is a great day for all PSG fans and it is very important for us and for Ligue 1. We are left with the best player in the world, it is a dream to win, win and win. We will be one of the best championships in the world and we have given Kylian the best conditions to win, win and win.

"Thanks to the family because he believes in our project. We want to continue making history with Kylian, we came to win and make more history at the club."
