Real Madrid’s new signing Aurelian Chuameni says he has tried to persuade Kylian Mbabane to join Paris Saint-Germain.
The 22-year-old completed his ሚሊዮን 100million move from Monaco to the Santiago Bernabeu and officially opened in Madrid on Tuesday, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side winning the race for the coveted midfielder.
Mbabane tried to beat Los Blancos again, persuading his compatriot to go to the French capital by canceling the window to sign a new contract with PSG.
“Killian knew I was leaving Monaco and wanted to know if I was going to join PSG,” Chuameni told a news conference. But my first choice was Real Madrid and he fully understood that.
“It is true that I had the opportunity to vote, but I did not hesitate for a second when I realized that Madrid were interested. I want to leave a mark on the history of football. There is no better team than Real Madrid.
Other options were on the table for Chaumeni, who confirmed that he had received ideas from elsewhere, but instructed his friends to move to Madrid on his own.
“I have spoken to other teams before, but I was waiting for the Madrid call on my own,” he said. “And when they do, I don’t hesitate to talk to my family and agents to get the best deal possible. It is wonderful to be here.
“As I said before, I told Real Madrid to shut down my agent as soon as he got out of talks, which was what I really wanted. There are many options, but this is a dream come true today. ”
Chuameni wears the number 18 jersey in Madrid – previously worn by Gareth Bale – and his favorite number eight has been taken by Tony Cross.
