PSG striker Kylian Mbappe: I DID reject Real Madrid

PSG striker Kylian Mbappe has confirmed he rejected Real Madrid over the summer.

It was claimed Real pulled back from talks before his final decision was made in leaving Monaco for Paris.

"[I turned down Real Madrid] because PSG is the team of my city," Mbappe told MARCA.

"[Joining Real Madrid] would have been like a Real Madrid-supporting kid from Madrid having the chance to play for his team and deciding to go somewhere else, to another country.

"I wanted to play for PSG and I am very happy right now about how things are going.

"There were a lot of rumours about the transfers and it's true that we spoke, but I think that's now in the past for me and for Real Madrid.

"I now play for PSG and I will defend these colours 100 percent."
