Mbappe staying at PSG, Real Madrid offer rejected
Kylian Mbappe is expected to stay at Paris Saint-Germain after the French club expressed confidence it will extend his contract at the end of the season.
Real Madrid were keen to sign him in the summer transfer window and made an opening bid worth €160 million for him a week before the window closed. PSG rejected that offer and decided against letting the France international leave the Parc des Princes.
Mbappe's contract expires next summer, though, and there could be doubts over his future at PSG.
PSG sporting director is confident he will not move elsewhere. He said: "I don't see Kylian leaving at the end of this season. Mbappe's relationship with PSG is deep. I don't think anyone here sees the future without him".
Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco for €180m in 2017, beating Real Madrid to his signature, and he has been the Spanish giants' top target ever since.
Mbappe has scored four goals so far this season, with PSG hoping that the collective attacking firepower that he, Neymar and Messi boast will finally help them clinch the club's first Champions League trophy.
The closest they have come was in 2020, when they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich in the final in Lisbon.
