Leonardo insists Kylian Mbappe will be staying at PSG beyond 2021/22

"I don't see Mbappe leaving at the end of this season. Nobody is thinking about the future of Paris Saint-Germain without Kylian," PSG Sporting director said to Canal Plus, as quoted by Goal.

"Kylian sort of represents the difference between the superficial and the deep. Kylian's relationship with Paris Saint-Germain is deep. That's why we don't think about anything else.

"Kylian represents many things. Not only because he is French or one of the best players in the world. He has a way of being that we like and one that everyone likes."

Leonardo denied that Real Madrid made a monstrous last-minute €220m bid for Mbappe.

"We were not happy with the behaviour of Real Madrid," Leonardo said.

"Starting negotiations for one of the best players in the world in the last week of the transfer market generated a situation that we did not like.

"We were clear about our position with the offer. It was not enough, it was smaller than what we paid.

"The last offer they talked about never came. You can't organise a transfer market for two, three or four months and change your plans like that."

Mbappe has shrugged off the effect of being the subject of the summer transfer window and is now PSG's most prolific forward so far this season.

The 22-year-old Frenchman has scored four goals in his first five games for PSG, plus a couple of assists.
