LALIGA have blasted Kylia Mbappe’s stunning U-turn as “scandalous” and will file a complaint to Uefa, accusing Paris Saint-Germain of “attacking the stability of football”.

The superstar forward, 23, looked on course to sign for Real Madrid as a free agent this summer.

He had agreed a £800,000-a-week contract at the Bernabeu with no transfer fee required.

But Mbappe has decided to stay put at PSG and has signed a three-year contract at the Parc des Princes worth a whopping £1.6million-per-week AFTER tax – and £500m overall including a £250m signing-on bonus fee.

The French champions confirmed the announcement this evening with a video of a suited-and-booted Mbappe overlooking the club’s stadium and declaring the club moto: “Ici c’est Paris [This is Paris].”

Now LaLiga are raging they will not be seeing one of the standout players in world football ripping it up in Spain next year.

They believe the eye-watering new deal is “attacking the stability of football”.

LaLiga said: “This type of agreement attacks the economic stability of European football, putting at risk hundreds of thousands of jobs and the integrity of the sport, not only in European competitions but also in domestic leagues.

“It is scandalous that a club like PSG, which last season reported losses of more than 220 million euros after accumulating losses of more than 700 million euros in prior seasons (while reporting sponsorship income at doubtful valuation), with a squad cost around 650 million for this season, can close such an agreement, while those clubs that could afford the hiring of the player without seeing their wage bill compromised, are left without being able to sign him.

“LaLiga will file a complaint against PSG before Uefa, the French administrative and fiscal authorities and European Union authorities to continue to defend the economic ecosystem of European football and its sustainability.”

Real were so confident they would land Mbappe that president Florentino Perez was forced go into the changing room after the draw with Real Betis on Friday to break the news that the Frenchman would NOT be coming to the Bernabeu.

And LaLiga’s scathing attack continued: “In the past LaLiga has complained to Uefa for non-compliance with financial fair play by PSG.

“These complaints were successful and Uefa sanctioned the club, while the Court of Artbitration for Sport (CAS), in a bizarre decision, reversed the sanctions.

“LaLiga and many European football institutions had hope that PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi after entering bodies of European football management such as the Uefa Executive Committee and the presidency of the European Club Association (ECA) would abstain from these practices knowing they cause grave damage, but the opposite has been true.

“PSG is assuming an impossible investment, seeing that it has an unacceptable wage bill and large financial losses in prior seasons. It is violating current Uefa and French economic control rules. 

“This behaviour demonstrates once more that state-owned clubs do not respect and do not want to respect the rules of a sector as important as football.


“These rules are key to protect and sustain hundreds of thousands of jobs. 

“This kind of behaviour led by Al-Khelaifi, president of PSG, and member of the Uefa Executive Committee and president of ECA, endangers European football on the same level as the European Super League.”

Mbappe spoke on the pitch tonight ahead of the clash with Metz.

He said: “I’m really happy to continue the adventure here at Paris Saint-Germain. To stay in Paris, my city.

“I hope that I will continue to do what I prefer to with you all… and win titles together! Thanks a lot.”

It is understood part of the negotiations saw the striker reveal his discontent with sporting director Leonardo – which could see him replaced by Luis Campos, who Mbappe worked with at Monaco.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino’s future is also in major doubt as Zinedine Zidane is eyed as the likely successor.
