After his impressive performances for AS Monaco last season, the 19-year-old attracted interest from Europe's elite, most notably FC Barcelona and Los Blancos.

However, the France international decided to join PSG on an initial loan deal, with an obligation to make the move permanent next season.

"(I turned down Real Madrid) because PSG is the team of my city," Mbappe told Marca.
"(Joining Real) 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%."

Mbappe is lying. He wanted to go to Madrid. But Madrid dropped interest in him because his wage demands were going to affect the club's wage structure heavily. So they decided to pull out. Every report said that.

I came to vuka to hel me get my bofriend back I caught him cheating on me and he left me,I naturally was angry but forgave him we worked it out but he vuka put him and I didn’t believe it but it took 7 days I counted and showed up at my job on a Friday as I was leaving work he was very apologetic and told me how much he loved me and begged me to take him back.I called Jay to tell him but it was late and Jay called me back the next day to hear the story he told me that this was natural and expected.It felt weird but I went with it and so far we have been doing great.I want to make things clear and that’s it felt weird cause my bofriend never acted like this before and I know it was because of the spl that’s why am here to thank vuka ”Contact vuka the Great Healer now for your relationship and problems, financial problems i.e win lotto,get promoted/permanent@work,start/ boost your busis,win tenders,win court cases, or whatsapp her your problem now””on zero,,six,,one,,seven,,eight,, seven,,four,,six,,four,,eight
