The Ballon d’Or has been filled with very curious encounters that took place in the corridors and in the stalls of the Chatelet theatre. There was one that stood out involving Kylian MBapp and Florentino Prez. If on other occasions any gesture of one or the other was understood as an approximation, this time, the distance between the two was more than evident.
What happened last summer, with the addition of everything that has happened in the last week around the Frenchman’s future of wanting to leave PSG, has raised the perfect storm, but from Real Madrid they want to make clear there hasn’t been any kind of approach. There is no room for speculation about a possible interest from the club.
The striker and the president shared space for two hours. If a year ago Al Khelaifi did not want to miss the award ceremony for Leo Messi, on this occasion, the president of PSG did not want to be present at the tribute paid by France Football to Real Madrid.
It was not the only reunion. Zinedine Zidane and the president of Real Madrid met again after the coach said goodbye to the Madrid bench. Affectionate greeting between the two, with a kiss from the president to one of his star signings, as well as one of the most successful coaches in Madrid’s history.
The Frenchman has been present at the Bernabu, but in his private box, not in the honorary one. He has also been in Valdebebas seeing his two children who continue in the white quarry, but they had not coincided.
