Real are on the verge of war with PSG

Real Madrid are embroiled in controversy with French PSG over the head coach of Los Blancos Zinedine Zidane and the sports director of the Parisians, Leonardo.

It all started with a question from a journalist who asked about the possibility of transferring Kylian Mbappe to the Madrid club. Zidane replied that it was up to the player to decide, and they would look at the situation in the future. At the same time, the coach of Los Blancos added that Mbappe always talked about the dream of playing for Real.

After such a loud statement, the sports director of the French club Leonardo entered the game. The functionary was dissatisfied with such vain words of Zidane and commented rather sharply on them,

“Honestly, this is slightly annoying. Now is not the time to constantly discuss the player of our team, and this is not the first time. I think it’s time to stop already.

I really respect Zidane, but right now you should not touch one of the best football players in the world, an incredible player. We are very pleased that he plays for our team, he has another 2.5 years of contract,” said Leonardo.

Zidane's answer was not long in coming. The Frenchman said that he only repeated the words of his compatriot and would always repeat them. To Leonardo’s reaction, Zidane said that he has the right to say whatever he wants.

Thus, between the teams located in the same quartet of the Champions League, a conflict is brewing. After the games of the national teams, when the players return to the location of their clubs, Real and PSG will enter the field of Santiago Bernabeu in the fifth round of the Champions League. So far, the situation in the group is such that PSG is celebrating the playoffs, and one point may be enough for Real Madrid.

Bookmakers consider the hosts to be the favorites of the confrontation at Santiago Bernabeu. The odds on their victory are 2.25, 3.50 on a draw and 3.00 on PSG’s triumph. Let us remind you that in the last match the Parisians destroyed Real Madrid 3:0 thanks to Di Maria’s brace and Meunier’s goal.
