Kylian Mbappe claims he is content with his situation at PSG as his contract continues to wind down in the French capital.
The World Cup winner is about to enter the final 12 months of his deal as discussions continue between himself and the club over an extension.
But PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi sent a defiant message to Mbappe’s potential suitors insisting their prized asset would not be sold under any circumstance and will not go on a free.
“I will be very clear: Kylian Mbappé is going to stay at PSG,” he told L’Equipe.
“We will never sell him, and he will never leave for free.”
Despite Al-Khelaifi’s claims Mbappe has refused to commit his future to PSG when pressed on his next move.
He told SportBild: “In football, you never know what’s going to happen. But I am currently very happy as it is.”
Mbappe has just enjoyed his most prolific season to date, scoring 42 times for the French giants.
The 22-year-old has just spent his fourth year at the Parc des Princes and has helped PSG continue to dominate domestically.
The Champions League has continued to elude them however with a final defeat in 2020 the closest they’ve come.
Bayern Munich were the team to stop PSG conquering Europe with a 1-0 win is Lisbon.
Mbappe has revealed that French teammate Lucas Hernandez, who joined Bayern from Atletico Madrid, is trying to convince him to move to Bavaria.
The forward has not hid his admiration for the German giants, who have won the last nine Bundesliga titles.
“Lucas Hernandez told me that I should come to Munich to play for Bayern,” said Mbappe.
“Bayern is one of the five best clubs in the world. One can only congratulate them on how they manage to keep the quality in the squad every year. They just know what they’re doing.
“Now [Jerome] Boateng and [David] Alaba have left, but [Dayot] Upamecano, who is an excellent defender, came in. They have a clear concept that makes them a great club.
“And yes, you are always a favourite for any title. So I’ll always have to win against Bayern in the future if I want to win a trophy.”
Or perhaps he gives it a year and heads to the Allianz Arena on a free instead.
Either way, the longer he goes without signing a new deal in Paris, the more difficult it becomes for PSG to keep their poster boy.
