Updated: May 14

  • Spanish giants Real Madrid are resigned to the fact Kylian Mbappe will not leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

  • Mbappe has been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu since he broke into the Monaco first team a few years ago.

Real Madrid will not be able to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe this summer, according to reports in French tabloid L’Equipe.

World Cup winner Mbappe, who has become one of the hottest properties in world football, has scored 90 goals in 120 appearances since making the switch from Monaco in 2017 and is still contracted with the Ligue 1 champions up until 2022. The 21-year-old has been constantly linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes, and Los Blancos are known to be favourites to sign the Les Bleus forward if he decides to seek pastures new.

PSG remain defiant on selling the France international, who they see as one of their most important players, and would like to build the team around him for the future.

Despite an injury-hit season, Mbappe scored 18 goals and registered 5 assists in 17 Ligue 1 appearances before coronavirus brought the 2019-20 campaign to a halt.
