PSG’s retention of Mbappe is a major coup for the Parisians, with his subsequent rejection of Real Madrid likely to cause ripples across European football, as Los Blancos launch a response.
However, Al-Khelaifi has focused solely on Mbappe’s future in the French capital as the 23-year-old committed his immediate future to the club.
“It’s exceptional moment in the history of PSG. Mbappe is a cornerstone of the club’s project for the years to come, on and off the pitch.” he stated.
