La Liga president Javier Tebas, has said that Real Madrid have enough money to purchase both Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe if they so choose.
Now, Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been tipped to swoop for Mbappe once more, alongside Borussia Dortmund star Haaland with another big transfer – and Tebas believes that the club can afford a double deal, while further blasting Ligue 1’s transfer regulations.
“They [Real Madrid] have sold €200 million worth of players,” Tebas told Cadena COPE. “They have enough money to sign both [Kylian] Mbappe and [Erling] Haaland together. They have not lost money. On top of that, they have sold assets.
“What is not understandable is that someone who loses €400 million, is spending €500 million on wages and can still reject offers like the one for Mbappe. The rules in France are failing, they are hurting the European market. The UEFA system is wrong.
“We are going backwards from the way it should be. Investors must be brought in, but not with unlimited contributions and constant losses. This would not be allowed in another sector.
“They prefer to win the Champions League and lose a billion euros. That way they keep their fans happy because they have won the Champions League, but you have ruined football. It’s very dangerous.”
The 59-year-old’s comments come following a summer that saw La Liga lose its most prized player asset to PSG in the shape of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, among financial struggles for a number of top-flight Spanish clubs.
Conversely, their rivals abroad have mostly strengthened their squads with a number of big-money moves, either in transfer fees or wages, with PSG in particular assembling a fearsome slate, including Madrid’s former captian Sergio Ramos.
