Breaking: Mbappe will stay at Paris Saint-Germain

Sat 21 May 2022 | 14:06

Kylian Mbappe has chosen his team. According to Fabrizio Romano, perhaps the finest youthful prospect in the world will remain at Paris Saint-Germain rather than move to Real Madrid.

Mbappe, 23, has been the topic of considerable rumours since a transfer to

Real Madrid

fell through last summer, leaving the former AS Monaco player to finish out the final 12 months of his agreement before becoming a free agent this summer.

Fabrizio Romano tweeted

:

"Kylian Mbappé will STAY at Paris Saint-Germain. He’s definitely not joining Real Madrid this summer, the final decision has been made and communicated to Florentino Perez."

The Italian journalist

added

:

"Kylian Mbappé called Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez today afternoon as he wanted to tell him directly his decision: sign a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain. It’s now done and 100% confirmed."

The French sensation came close to leading the Ligue 1 champions past Real in the

UEFA Champions League

round of 16 this season, only for Mauricio Pochettino's side to give it back at the Santiago Bernabeu, thus settling the matter of Mbappe's future in Los Blancos' advantage.

The

LaLiga

winners have subsequently advanced to the final, where they will meet Liverpool next weekend at Stade de France in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis.

Mbappe, who netted 36 goals this season, was named

Ligue 1

player of the year for the third time last weekend. He has at least 30 goals in each of his previous four seasons with PSG, with 42 goals last season.

The news that Mbappe will stay is huge for PSG, who are aiming for European triumph in the near future after investing much in Lionel Messi last summer. Retaining Mbappe enables the club to put him, Messi, and Neymar in the onslaught again next season, when they will be one of the contenders to win the Champions League.
