Mbappe was linked to Madrid last year, but a deal wasn’t reached as he re-signed for PSG who offered him more money among other things.
Shedding more light on what happened during an interview with AS, Jese insisted that Mbappe felt personally pressured to play for the French giants.
“Come on, I was clear about it because he told me. He told me and I tell more people: those of us who spoke Spanish. I think it was more personal than professional pressure. All players make decisions, they can be wrong or accept the decision.
“But the people cannot intervene. For example, the president of France cannot tell you ‘don’t go here, you have to stay. In my opinion, I think he felt more personal than professional pressure to make a decision.”
