Kylian Mbappe has reiterated that is his commitment is with Paris Saint-Germain, despite continued speculation that he could join Real Madrid.

The striker penned a three-year deal with the French giants last year, after it had looked certain that would he make a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid president Florentino Perez was disappointed with Mbappe’s decision, but there have been continued links that the Frenchman could still join Real Madrid in the future.

With Lionel Messi and Neymar’s future at the Parc des Princes uncertain, Mbappe has given a massive boost to PSG supporters by stating his desire to win the Champions League with the club.

Mbappe told France 3 as per Goal: ‘The next step? Winning the Champions League.

‘I have already made a final, semi-final, quarter-final, round of 16, I have done everything but win. That’s all I need.’

He continued: ‘Where (I want to do it)? In Paris. I’m a Parisian and under contract. So it’s PSG.’

It was a disappointing Champions League campaign for PSG who were beaten 3-0 on aggregate by Bayern Munich in the round of 16.

Real Madrid put forward a bid of £154m for the 23-year-old before he signed his new deal worth a staggering £650,000-per-week.

There were reports earlier in the season that Mbappe wanted to leave the club as he felt ‘betrayed’ by the club’s owners.

He has cut an unhappy figure in France at times during the season, openly slamming manager Christophe Galtier’s tactics earlier in the season and reportedly falling out with team mate Neymar. Mbappe though has always insisted that his future is with PSG.

His comments though come a week after the club angered Mbappe who was unimpressed by them using him as their poster boy to sell season tickets for the 2023-24 campaign.

The French captain slammed his own club in a statement on Instagram, arguing that he has been made too prominent in their season ticket promo, admitting that he was not informed of the content and disagrees with the video.

Mbappe is placed front and centre in the advert, featuring an interview with him, along with match action and clips of supporters – with barely any mention of his team mates as Messi and Neymar are not included in the advert.

In his statement, the 24-year-old objected to having his image used in this way, and insisted that the club is not ‘Kylian Saint-Germain.’

French media reported last week that Argentine World Cup winner Messi is prepared to quit PSG this summer.

L’Equipe reported that the two parties are ‘close to divorce’ with negotiations over a new contract moving ‘further apart’ over recent weeks.

Neymar, who is out for the season, is contracted until 2025 but there has also been talk over his future at the club.
