French striker Kylian Mbappe is one of the prolific strikers in world football, as he has been nailing it in Paris Saint-Germain for the past three seasons. Owing to his unstoppable performances, he has been liked to a high-profile move, notably Real Madrid.

Mbappe has been sensational at the French capital, having scored 132 goals in 171 matches across competitions. Although he is yet to attain European success, critics believe it’s just a matter of time before he lays his hands on the UEFA Champions League title.

However, will the UCL success come at PSG, or will it happen after making the lucrative move to the Spanish capital? On the same note, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has spoken on the Frenchman’s future in Paris, and here’s what he had to say.

“I will be clear, Mbappe is going to stay in Paris. We will never sell him and he will never leave on a free (transfer). Mbappe has everything he needs in Paris. Where can he go? What club, in terms of ambition, can compete with PSG today?” he told L’Equipe.

“All I can say is that things are going well and I hope we can reach an agreement (on a new contract). This is Paris; this is his country. He has a mission, not only to play football but to promote Ligue 1, his country and his capital,” he concluded.

Mbappe is undoubtedly one of the most-sought strikers globally, having led France to the FIFA World Cup 2018 success. As he looks to lead the side to European success in the UEFA Euro 2020, he has his club future secured in Paris.

Nevertheless, Al-Khelaifi’s admission would not necessarily mean that Madrid gives up the pursuit. Besides Los Blancos, Manchester United also reportedly happens to be another team with the Frenchman on its radar and is willing to break the bank to have his services at Old Trafford.
