”I will watch merely as an admirer” World Cup champion plays down Real Madrid links

World Cup champion, Kylian Mbappe says he will be an interested observer of Zinedine Zidane’s project at Real Madrid – but not a part of it.

Kylian Mbappe has told media that he is committed to Paris Saint-Germain, amid ongoing rumors linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

The France striker has scored 36 goals in all competitions this season, netting a hat-trick against former side Monaco on the day PSG were confirmed as Ligue 1 champions, following Lille’s draw with Toulouse.


“I am here, I am in the project,” said Mbappe of PSG.

“It’s good for Real Madrid if there is Zizou, but I will watch merely as an admirer.”

With the hat-trick, Mbappe became the first Ligue 1 player since Jean-Pierre Papin in 1989-90 to score 30 league goals.

Since making his debut for Monaco in 2015 aged 16, Mbappe has scored 59 goals in Ligue 1.
