Kylian Mbappe pledges his future to PSG

    Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has shut down speculations about a potential summer move to Real Madrid or Liverpool

    Mbappe has played a prominent role at PSG since joining from Monaco in summer 2017, notching 90 goals and contributing with 49 assists in 120 appearances.

    Although the 21-year-old initially arrived on loan, the Ligue 1 champions have forked out €180million to sign him permanently the following year, handing him a four-year contract.

    Mbappe is central to PSG’s long-term project, and the ‘Parisians’ have already made it clear that they are ready to do everything in their power to fend off suitors for the quick-silver forward’s signature.

    Real Madrid and Liverpool have both been credited with an interest in the World Cup winner. But, the financial fallout of the coronavirus crisis has forced them to postpone any action towards completing a move.

    The France international, on the other hand, is also reluctant to leave Paris ahead of the 2020/21 season and has closed the door for a potential summer exit.

    “I’m here. I am in the project for the fourth year,” Mbappe told beIN Sports, as relayed by the Sports Illustrated.

    “The 50th year of the club is an important year for the club, the supporters, everyone, so I will be there no matter what.

    “I will try to bring back trophies with the team and give the best of myself.”

    Thomas Tuchel’s side also remain in contention for the Champions League title as they prepare to tackle Atalanta in the quarter-finals after dumping out Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16.
