Kylian Mbappé has this afternoon posted a letter on his social media accounts explaining his decision to renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2025.
The forward’s extension was announced before last night’s match against Metz, having turned down Real Madrid to stay at his current team.
He thanks club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the PSG supporters, but also Real Madrid’s Florentino Pérez for the Spanish club’s insistence in trying to bring him.
“I’m convinced that I can continue to grow here, at a club which is giving itself every means to reach the top. I would like to thank the president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, for his confidence, his attention and his patience. I also have a thought for all of the PSG supporters, in France and around the world, for their countless shows of affection, especially in these last few months.”
“I would also like to sincerely thank Real Madrid and their president Florentino Pérez. I am aware of the chance and privilege I had at being coveted by such an institution. I can imagine their disappointment. It is as big as my own hesitations. I will be their biggest fan in the Champions League final. At my home.”
“I am very happy to continue playing in France, the country where I was born, grew up and blossomed. And which gives me the chance to chase my dreams.”
