After establishing himself as one of the hottest young prospects in Europe at Monaco, Mbappe chose PSG as the club to continue his journey with in 2017.

"Why did he not sign at Real?" he told Telefoot.  

"He told me: 'Vadim, I think it's too early, I'm Parisian, I do not want to leave my country like that, I want to become a great player here.'

"I told him, 'Kylian, you're right'. He wants to win. And of course, the Champions League must be won for a player like that. If he wins it with Paris, it's better.

"He remains the same person, the same Kylian. It's just that he has gained importance, power in the global landscape.

"I know Cristiano Ronaldo quite well, and he always wants to break all records, go further. Kylian is the same."
