Paris Saint-Germain superstar and long-time Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe has, on Sunday, provided an insight into his future.
PSG stand firm
The headline news surrounding ongoings at the Bernabeu this past summer of course came in the form of Real’s pursuit of Mbappe.
Despite the French international having had just a year to run on his contract with PSG, it is understood that Los Blancos tabled a mammoth offer worth €170 million, plus a further 10 million in bonuses, for his signature.

Remarkably, however, the board at the Parc des Princes opted to knock this proposal back.
In turn, word was forthcoming late in August that Florentino Perez and co. had come to the decision to pull the plug on their summer swoop for Mbappe, to instead focus their attentions on finding a pre-contract agreement with the 22-year-old in January.
And so, the weeks since have seen speculation continue to swirl in the media, with the widespread assumption remaining that, in the end, Mbappe will make his Madrid-shaped dreams come true.
In turn, during an interview with Prime Video Sport France this evening, it came as little surprise when the prolific young attacker was drawn on his plans beyond the current campaign.
And Mbappe certainly wasn’t shy in leaving the door ajar to a transfer, simply assuring that ‘whatever happens, I’m going to play for a big club’:
Kylian Mbappé on his future to @PVSportFR: “It’s not easy. Whatever happens, I’m going to play for a big club. People were asking me if I wasn’t too disappointed… yes a bit at the beginning, when you wanted to leave, but I wasn’t in the 3rd division”. 🔴🇫🇷 #PSG @psghub
