Kylian Mbappe has signed a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the club has confirmed.

The French champions were in danger of losing the 23-year-old for free this summer with his previous deal set to expire.

Real Madrid had been tipped to sign him, but an improved contract offer from PSG revived hopes of the club holding on to him.

It turns out PSG did manage to convince the striker to commit to his future, with a new deal announced on Saturday night ahead of their match against Metz.

“I wanted to announce that I have chosen to extend my contract at Paris Saint-Germain, and of course I am very happy about it,” Mbappe said upon announcing the deal.

“I am convinced that here I can continue to grow within a club which gives itself all the means to perform at the highest level. I am also very happy to be able to continue to evolve in France, the country where I was born, grew up and flourished.  

Al-Khelaifi added: “The extension of Kylian’s contract marks an exceptional moment in the history of our Club and is great news for all our fans around the world.
