PARIS (Reuters) -Kylian Mbappe has decided to extend his stay at Paris St Germain, French sport daily L’Equipe reported on Saturday.
The France forward, whose current contract expires on June 30, had been widely tipped to join Real Madrid.
L’Equipe said a new contract, which is likely to tie him to the French champions until 2025, had not been signed yet.
PSG declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.
The 23-year-old, one of the game’s finest talents who burst onto the scene as a teenager and helped France win the World Cup in 2018, was set to leave on a free transfer when his contract expired at the end of the season.
PSG signed Mbappe from AS Monaco in 2017 in a deal reported to be about 180 million euros, making him the world’s second-most expensive signing after Neymar, who joined PSG from Barcelona for 222 million euros.
Real’s bid to sign Mbappe last year was rejected by the Parisian club, who appeared prepared to lose him on a free transfer this year.
