Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al Khelaifi has spoken about Kylian Mbappe’s future at the club, revealing that he hasn’t seen Real Madrid’s statement about the player yet.
Mbappe’s future has been in doubt for a while now and links with Real Madrid have been constant. Recent rumours had suggested that Los Blancos had opened talks to sign the player next summer, but Real Madrid released a statement to rubbish those rumours.
Ahead of PSG’s upcoming Champions League clash against Milan, Al Khelaifi spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via TMW) and he was asked about the situation of Mbappe.
He said: “I haven’t seen Real Madrid’s statement, we are all focused on ourselves and our football, not on others. Kylian continues to achieve great goals and maybe people take it for granted, but no one has played in two World Cup finals and also scored a hat-trick. I repeat: Kylian is the best in the world, it’s fantastic to see him at the helm of PSG and France. He has a positive effect on our young people, he helps us build our future.”
Mbappe had impressed in the clash against Milan in Paris, as he scored once in a 3-0 win. The Rossoneri will be aiming to win their first game in the campaign so far but Mbappe, whose contract at PSG runs out in the summer of 2024, will have his plans to foil the Rossoneri’s goals.
