The French ace has been linked with Liverpool and Real Madrid, with his contract running until 2022.
Kylian Mbappe has stated that he wants to succeed at PSG instead of thinking about a transfer this summer. The French World Cup winner has been a subject of transfer interest from European heavyweights Real Madrid and Liverpool lately, but he has now ended the speculations.
“I’m here. I am in the project for the fourth year,” Mbappe said.
“The 50th year of the club is an important year for the club, the supporters, everyone, so I will be there no matter what.
“I will try to bring back trophies with the team and give the best of myself.”
Mbappe joined the Parisians from fellow Ligue 1 outfit Monaco in 2015 in a blockbuster transfer, which made him the second-best expensive signing in Europe, preceded by his current team-mate Neymar Jr. The 21-year-old exceeded the expectations as goals and assists flourished from his feet. Alongside the Brazilain talisman Neymar, Mbappe established a fearsome partnership, leaving the opponents behind the trail.
Although Mbappe was able to find much success with Les Parisiens, it was limited to domestic level alone as PSG came up short in the Champions League. It also led the French attacker to get linked with a move away from Parc des Princes. Real Madrid turn out to be his perennial suitors, with Zinedine Zidane’s reported interest in joining hands with his compatriot.
Amidst the transfer interest from Liverpool, Mbappe hailed the Reds’ recent success, while calling Jurgen Klopp a machine.

“They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like we play again, we play again.
Mbappe, one of the most valuable football players, has been in scintillating form this season, racking up 30 goals and 17 assists in all competitions. He is also the top scorer of the Ligue 1 for the past two seasons.
Neymar also appears to be following the footsteps of Mbappe as the 28-year-old is likely to remain with the French capital club despite constant links with FC Barcelona.
Thomas Tuchel has had a massive impact on PSG’s Champions League run this term, leading his side to the quarter-finals. The Parisians will face Serie A dark horse Atalanta next month.
PSG are enjoying a productive preseason as they recently beat Celtic 4-0. The trio of Neymar, Mbappe and Mauro Icardi is looking in good shape and will be crucial for Tuchel’s quest for European success.
