Paris Saint-Germain rule out Kylian Mbappe exit

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed their “shared history will continue next season” with star striker Kylian Mbappe.

The 20-year-old striking sensation scooped the Ligue 1 player of the year award on Sunday and hinted that he could be open to a move to another club, with Real Madrid strongly linked.

A statement from PSG on Monday spoke of the “very strong links which unite the club and Mbappe” whom they signed in a landmark €170m deal from Monaco in the summer of 2017.

“It’s a turning point, it was the moment to say it,” Mbappe was reported as saying.

“I am whole. When I say something, I mean it. I said it. If it is at PSG, that’s good, if it is elsewhere, it is elsewhere.

“It’s a very important moment for me, I come to a turning point in my career. I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is maybe the moment to have more responsibility.

“I hope that can perhaps be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project.”

Mbappe has netted 59 goals in 86 games for PSG and was the top scorer in Ligue 1 this campaign with 32 strikes to his name.
