Kylian Mbappé chatted to Canal + France after hitting a hat trick in PSG’s 3-1 win over Monaco. When quizzed about his future, World Cup-winner Mbappé, who is high on Real Madrid’s agenda, declared that he is happy in Paris: “I’m staying at PSG”.
Mbappé is under contract until 2022 and insists he will be staying in Paris for another season at least: “I’m fully involved in PSG’s project. I’m happy for Real Madrid that Zizou has come back. I’ll watch their games as an admirer”.
Just a month ago, France Football reported that Madrid would be putting in an 280 million euro offer for Mbappé. Zidane’s return to the coaching job appeared to be key in the operation to sign the young centre-forward – as he had already attempted to sign him back in the summer of 2017, when he was starting to make a name for himself at Monaco.
