Kylian Mbappe Move To PSG Not ‘Useful’ To Ligue 1 – Lyon Chief Jean-Michel Aulas

With reports claiming that Paris Saint-Germain are closing in on a £128m move for the Monaco forward, Lyon President has criticised the deal.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has hit out at a possible Kylian Mbappe transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, saying such a move would ruin competition in Ligue 1.

Aulas who has previously criticised Neymar’s world record move to PSG says the move will hinder competition within the French League

“We’re talking about the possible arrival of Kylian Mbappe,” Aulas told RMC. “When you see Sunday’s game, is it useful for Mbappe to come to PSG? Is it useful for the competition and the economic evolution of football?

“If you no longer have balance in terms of the investors, in the long-term, you risk no longer having the incredible football we saw with PSG. I’m afraid we’re heading into an arms race, which is pointless.

“It is going to improve PSG’s performance if Kylian Mbappe comes? If you hoard, with supernatural money, the best players in one team, you don’t have any more competition.”
