Kylian Mbappe was linked with a move away from PSG in 2021, but France president Emmanuel Macron urged him to stay at PSG and to continue playing in the French top flight.

Mbappe has now made it clear that he won’t be extending his stay at Real Madrid.

Reports from France have again claimed that Macron would try to push Mbappe to stay at the Parc des Princes.

However, the 24-year-old has simply reiterated his stance that his plan is to remain with PSG next season, but won’t be extending his contract.

“What influence does the President have? On my career today, in 2023, none. He wants me to stay in Paris, my objective is to stay. We’re on the same wavelength,” Mbappe told reporters ahead of France’s European Championship qualifier against Gibraltar on Friday.

“Am I going to leave PSG? I’ve already answered, I’ve said that my objective is to stay at PSG, that’s my only option at the moment. I’m ready to come back when pre-season resumes.

“I didn’t think a letter killed anyone or that I had offended anyone.”
