PSG’s sporting project has convinced Mbappe to snub Real Madrid.
The Frenchman has signed a three-year extension with the Ligue 1 giants and would depart in the summer of 2025.
Everybody knew Mbappe was getting closer to joining Real Madrid and the club always stayed in close contact with the player’s representatives.
The 23-year-old has personally texted Florentino Perez to confirm his PSG stay.

“Everybody knows I wanted to leave last year. But things are different now, in sporting terms and personally,” Mbappe said. “Leaving my country wasn’t the right thing. There’s a sentimental aspect to this, and the sporting project has changed as well. … We spoke for months about the sporting project, and we spoke about money for just a few minutes.”
“I made my decision last week,” Mbappe said. “I spoke to Florentino Perez. I have a lot of respect for him and for Real Madrid. They did everything to bring me there and make me happy, so I thank them for that.”
