World Cup winner and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has confirmed he will sign a new contract at Parc des Princes in a few days with the intention of joining Real Madrid.
Mbappe spoke to the entire Parc des Princes crowd ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s last Ligue 1 season home game against Metz on Saturday night, May 21st.
The 23-year-old has been given a microphone to announce that he has signed a new three-year deal with the French giants – having just moved to Real Madrid.
Real Madrid had high hopes of boasting a midfielder from this summer onwards when Mbappe’s first contract with PSG expired.
But a new contract worth £ 1m a week has seen the 23-year-old give his future to the Paris players.
Speaking to the crowd, Mbappe explained: “I am very happy to be at PSG in France. I have always said that Paris is my home, I hope we will continue to play football and win trophies together. Thank you for everything. ”
PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi released the news before introducing Mbappe to the crowd: “I’m proud to give you the good news: Kylian Mbappé signed until June 2025 with Paris Saint-Germain.”
Mbappe enjoyed a fantastic season on his own, helping the club win their Ligue 1 title with his goal-scoring prowess. The World Cup winner has more goals and assistants than any 25 and 17 league player in his name respectively in the same category.
With his new contract, he now surpasses teammates Neymar and Lionel Messi as the team’s leading scorer.
