Aulas hits out at PSG’s bid for Mbappe

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has voiced his concerns as Paris Saint-Germain close in on a deal for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe.

France’s latest sensation has been linked with most of Europe’s top clubs after his breakout campaign with Monaco last season, but the Parisians are reportedly close to a deal.

PSG already broke the world transfer record to buy Neymar from Barcelona and, after the Brazilian scored two and assisted two in Sunday’s 6-2 route of Toulouse, Aulas is worried about what this means for Ligue 1.

"When we see the game on Sunday night, is it useful that Mbappe comes to the PSG?" Aulas asked RMC.

"Is this useful for the competition and for the economic development of football?

"If you no longer have an equilibrium in terms of investors, eventually you risk not having this great football as seen with PSG.

"I'm afraid that we get into a bicep surge, which is not useful. Will it improve the performance of PSG as Mbappe comes?

"If you stack, with supernatural money, the best players in a team, you do not have any more competition."
