It Wasn't Just About The Money' - How PSG Beat Real Madrid To Mbappe Signing

 The World Cup-winning striker could have moved to Spain in 2017, but Luis Ferrer explains how he was convinced to stay in his home country

Luis Ferrer spent over 10 years as part of Paris Saint-Germain's recruitment team, working tirelessly alongside the likes of Antero Henrique and Leonardo to sign the best talent possible and transform the club into a European powerhouse.

He has since left to pursue his own business, LF360, but not before playing his part in the signing of Kylian Mbappe - a transfer that looked impossible in the wake of the club already having spent a world-record fee to sign Neymar from Barcelona.

Ferrer and PSG pulled it off, however, and became good friends with the striker's family in the process. Speaking exclusively to Goal, the recruitment expert reveals how he and his team managed to convince Mbappe to snub Real Madrid in favour of the French giants.
