After being linked with a potential world-record transfer to LaLiga giants Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid Kylian Mbappe has now broken his silence over the potential move.
Mbappe, who is reportedly valued at €200 million (R3.2 billion) by PSG, emerged as a transfer target for Real Madrid at the beginning of the season, with Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane openly admitting that he is an admirer of the 21-year-old starlet.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has now responded to the rumours linking him with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, and revealed that he remains committed to his current employers for the immediate future.
"Everyone talks about it (Real Madrid) – when I was young I talked about it too," Mbappe said at the presentation of his new charity, as reported by the BBC.

"But now I'm a player and I know it's not the moment. We are in January – it's the money time of the season. Imagine I answer your question and say something. Everybody will talk about it and it's not good for PSG.
"Now I'm with PSG and I'm 100% with the club. I want to help the club grow this season, to win a lot of titles, so, for me, it's not good to talk about (my future).
"I think about the club because the club helped me. I came here at 18. I was a talent but I was not a superstar. Now I'm a superstar, thanks to PSG and the French national team.
"I have to stay calm and stay focused on PSG. After that, at the end of the season, we will see. But now I'm focused on my game."
Mbappe, who officially joined PSG from AS Monaco for a reported fee of €145 million (R2.3 billion) in 2018, has scored 81 goals in 109 appearances for the club and won the 2018/19 Ligue 1 Golden Boot award.
