Kylian Mbappe has revealed the reason why he turned down a move to Real Madrid – because he loves PSG.
The French youngster, 19, joined forces with Neymar at the Parc des Princes earlier this summer when he completed a loan move from Ligue 1 champions Monaco.The move will be turned into a permanent £160million permanent switch to PSG at the end of the season
“[I turned down Real Madrid] because PSG is the team of my city,” Mbappe said.
“[Joining Real Madrid] would have been like a Real Madrid-supporting kid from Madrid having the chance to play for his team and deciding to go somewhere else, to another country.
“I wanted to play for PSG and I am very happy right now about how things are going.“There were a lot of rumours about the transfers and it’s true that we spoke, but I think that’s now in the past for me and for Real Madrid.“I now play for PSG and I will defend these colours 100 per cent.”
