During the summer transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid. PSG sporting director Leonardo claims that the attacker has a strong bond with the club and that he expects him to continue playing alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar.
The 52-year-old was quoted as saying:
“I don’t see Mbappe leaving at the end of this season. Nobody is thinking about the future of Paris Saint-Germain without Kylian. Kylian sort of represents the difference between the superficial and the deep. Kylian’s relationship with Paris Saint-Germain is deep. That’s why we don’t think about anything else.”
Leonardo went on to say:
“Kylian represents many things. Not only because he is French or one of the best players in the world. He has a way of being that we like and one that everyone likes.”
“Messi, Neymar and Mbappe are not something to look at for just one year. I think they complement each other, each one is number one in their characteristics. I don’t see any jealousy between them.”
Kylian Mbappe tried to leave PSG during the summer transfer window, even telling the club he didn’t want to stay. Real Madrid tried to entice him away from Paris but were unable to persuade the Parisians to part with one of their top stars.
Paris Saint-Germain have rejected a bid in excess of €220m from Real Madrid for Kylian Mbappe. A world record transfer fee. They could/will lose Mbappe as a free agent next year. A first-team squad of over 30 players. Money is not and never will be remotely relevant to them.

PSG hаve cleаred the first hurdle by fending off Reаl Mаdrid’s аpproаch to sign their stаr forwаrd. But the story doesn’t end there. The Pаrisiаns must persuаde Kyliаn Mbаppe to sign а new contrаct аs soon аs possible in order to ensure his future аt the Pаrc des Princes.
The аttаcker is in the finаl yeаr of his contrаct, so he could leаve for free аt the end of the seаson. Unless а deаl is struck in the coming weeks, the Frenchmаn will be free to meet with potentiаl suitors in Jаnuаry.
