Kylian Mbappe to stay at Paris Saint-Germain next season

One of the hottest properties in world football, Kylian Mbappe said on Tuesday he would remain with French champions Paris Saint-Germain next season despite constant speculation over his future. 

The World Cup winner continues to be linked with moves away from PSG, the club he joined from Monaco in 2017 on an initial loan that was followed by a €180 million transfer.

Mbappe scored 30 goals in all competitions before the Ligue 1 giants saw their season suspended and the league title presented to them due to the global pandemic.

‘I will be here whatever happens’

The world champion will get the opportunity to add to that tally as the Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Champions League continue in the coming weeks. 

“I’m here. I’m part of the project for a fourth year,” Kylian Mbappe, 21, told BeIn Sport during half-time of PSG’s 4-0 win over Celtic in a friendly played in front of around 5,000 fans at the Parc des Princes. 

“The club’s 50-year anniversary is an important one in the eyes of the club, the supporters, of everyone, so I will be here whatever happens.” 

“I’m going to try and bring back trophies with the team and give the best of myself,” added Kylian Mbappe.

“Kylian has a contract with us, we’re not ready to sell him. He is super important, he’s a key player, our player. It’s a gift to work with him,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel. “It’s super. There’s a really nice connection between him and Neymar. It makes it fun for everyone. It’s a real strength for PSG. It’s great like that.” 

Kylian Mbappe could yet be joined in staying in Paris by another key figure, as Thomas Tuchel acknowledged Thiago Silva’s future has not been settled and would be leaving the club soon.

PSG announced their captain would depart at the end of the campaign but later confirmed an extension to take in the remaining three competitions, while the likes of Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier opted to leave the club immediately. 

The Ligue 1 season was declared over in April with PSG confirmed as champions for the seventh time in eight seasons. They will also face Lyon in the French League Cup final on July 31 as they bid for a record extending 13th French Cup title before resuming their Champions League campaign in Lisbon, where they take on Atalanta for a spot in the last four.
