Kylian Mbappe has been linked to Real Madrid but the French star says he is shocked with the report.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has denied the rumour of him leaving the French club following their win on Sunday

There were rumours that the former Monaco player wants to leave the club in January but the French man says he is surprised by the news.

“I never asked for my departure in January,” Mbappe told reporters after PSG’s 1-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

“The information that came out on the day of the [Champions League match against Benfica], I did not understand it. I am not involved in this information neither directly nor indirectly.”

Sources told reporters on Tuesday that the striker was fed up with unfulfilled promises by PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and wanted to leave the capital as soon as possible.

“I was as shocked by this news as everyone else. People may think I’m involved, I’m not at all,” Mbappe added. “I was taking a nap, my entourage was at my little brother’s game. We were stunned when we found out.

“Afterwards, we had to deal with it, we had a match to play. I just wanted to say that it’s completely false, I’m very happy here.”

The 23-year-old France international was linked with a move to LaLiga champions Real Madrid in the close season and was expected to move from the Paris club after five years.
