Nasser Al-Khelaïfi invited to lunch by Florentino Pérez in Madrid

The Madridista president, Florentino Pérez, invited his Parisian counterpart, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, to eat in Madrid before the second leg between PSG and Real Madrid, a tradition revived for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

The lunch will take place while relations between the two clubs are refreshed, due, among other things, to the Super League project or the signing of Kylian Mbappé. While PSG and Real Madrid will play the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 this Wednesday, March 9, their respective presidents, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and Florentino Pérez, according to journalist Sergio Quirante, will meet earlier in the day with a meal.

This lunch, which used to be a tradition between two clubs that met at UCL, is the first organized by the Madrid president since the start of the pandemic. During the week of the first meeting between Parisians and meringues, the Qatari leader had already organized an official lunch in Paris.

According to Le Parisien, relations during this meal were sometimes cold, sometimes cordial. One of the causes could be, according to Marca, the Madrid president's twenty-six minute delay at this meal. But the tensions between the two clubs have been running for several months, deeper than that.
