Real Madrid legend Sanchez baffled by Mbappe staying with PSG

Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez is baffled by Kylian Mbappe's decision to stay with PSG and sign a new contract.

The former Mexican striker spoke about what happened in an exclusive interview granted to Claro Sports and MARCA Claro Mexico.

"I still struggle to know if he really said no or really said 'I'd better go and wait'. Saying no to Real Madrid is impossible, you can't say no to Real Madrid," he said.

The Mexican gave a personal hypothesis about what happened.

"I think there have been extra-sporting things, it could be family or political issues. Financially, having 100 or 150 does not make that much difference, but I think that will not have influenced his decision, being at Real Madrid or PSG he was going to earn a lot of money, he is a player to be at the highest level for 10 or 12 years," he said.
