Paris St Germain Star Mbappe says the football transfer market is indecent but admitted he is not ready to revolutionize a change from the status quo
Mbappe completed a permanent transfer to PSG from Monaco this year for a reported fee of €180 million after spending the previous year on loan.
The remarkable transfer fee for Mbappe despite having only one season at the top represents the indecency the World Cup winner is talkong about.
Brazilian forward Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona in 2017 for €222m in a deal that shook the European game and led to four more deals worth more than €100m.
"It's truly indecent for me, who comes from a fairly modest family," Mbappe told RTS.
"It's true that it's indecent but the market is like that. The world of football works like that"
"I'm not going to revolutionise football. I'm in a system. You have to know how to respect it and to stay in place."- Mbappe
The highly sought after teenager also spoke about comparisons with legends of the game like Pele;
Mbappe insists he is not trying to emulate anyone, saying: "I don't want to be a copy of anyone else. Like the greats, you want to make your own story yourself, and not be a copy of another"
"I think it's only natural to have high self-esteem, even if in everyday life you need to have that humility that is a strength of the greats."- Mbappe
