Kylian Mbappe has committed his future to French champions Paris Saint-Germain after suggesting he is only an observer in Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid overhaul.

Mbappe, 20, scored a hat-trick against former club Monaco to celebrate their League title triumph after second-placed Lille handed them the title before kick-off.

The World-Cup winner’s treble took his goal tally to 30 goals just three behind Lionel Messi in the chase for the European Golden Boot.


And Mbappe went further to confirm his future lies in Paris following their title triumph.

“I am here, I am in the project,” Mbappe said on Canal Plus.

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

His dad Wilfried Mbappe slammed the constant speculation as “embarrassing” last week.

He told French newspaper Le Parisien: “Before I read and watched everything, but not any more.

“It’s like a chocolate cake, if you eat too much, then you get an upset stomach. Sometimes, there’s misinformation too.


“OK, Kylian is a public person, but I do not understand that there are everyday things about him. It’s embarrassing.

“I am no longer able to do things that were done every day. Sometimes we need peace. Today, everyone knows this name.”
