Kylian Mbappe has assured Paris Saint-Germain fans that he won’t be leaving in the summer despite interest from Real Madrid.
The 20-year-old has long been a target for the Spanish giants who are plotting a big summer spending spree following a disappointing campaign that looks certain to end without a trophy.
Mbappe has enjoyed another prolific campaign in France this season and is the Ligue 1’s top scorer on 24 goals with PSG flying high 14 points clear at the top of the table with two games in hand.
The French champions, who won 2-0 at Old Trafford, were knocked out by Marcus Rashford’s injury-time penalty.
Qatari-backed PSG has never been beyond the quarter-finals despite plenty of investment.
“I’m stunned. We’d worked so hard to get to this point,” Mbappe told French TV channel TF1.
“I haven’t been able to sleep. I’m pretty sure it’s been the same with everyone.
“Honestly, it’s hard to give it too much thought because the Champions League was our goal. The stadium was full for a magnificent occasion, we spoiled the party. We didn’t want to ruin it but in the end, we did.”
The 20-year-old France World Cup winner, who cost the club £166m from Monaco, says it is “guaranteed” he will be at the club next season.
“With this elimination and all the problems it’s going to create, there’s no point in my personal situation being added to it. So there, that’s clear and precise.”
