Kylian Mbappé ended all speculation surrounding his future by penning a new three-year contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain, ahead of Saturday's final league game of the season against Metz.

The 23-year-old forward who had been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, expressed 'delight' at continuing his Parisian adventure.

Mbappé toasted his new deal - which will run until June 30, 2025 - with a superb hat-trick in PSG's 5-0 thrashing of Metz at the Parc des Princes.

Delighted

"I would like to announce that I have chosen to extend my contract at Paris Saint-Germain, and of course I am delighted," Mbappé told PSG's official website. "I am convinced that here I can continue to grow at a club that provides everything necessary to perform at the highest level. I am also delighted to continue to play in France, the country where I was born, where I have grown up and where I have made my name.

"I would like to thank the President, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, for his trust, his understanding and his patience. I would also like to thank all the fans of Paris Saint-Germain, both in France and around the world, for their support, especially in recent months. Together, side by side and ambitious, we will make magic in Paris."

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was ecstatic with the World Cup winner's decision and expressed his pride in convincing Mbappé to continue at the Parc des Princes. 

Exciting future

"Kylian's commitment to PSG represents an amazing milestone in the history of our Club, and a wonderful moment for our fans around the world," he added.

"Since the day Kylian joined our family, he has achieved greatness beyond his years on every single stage. In committing to PSG, he will be the foundation of our Club’s future both on and off the field.

"I am incredibly proud and very happy – for Kylian, for our fans, and our entire PSG family worldwide – that we will continue our wonderful journey together. For our fans and our Club, the greatest chapters of our future lie ahead."

Mbappé joined PSG from Monaco aged just 17 despite growing up in the Paris region.

His career took off in quick fashion winning the World Cup with France a year later then adding a host of domestic and individual honours including four Ligue 1 Uber Eats titles, three Coupe de France wins, the Coupe de la Ligue twice and two Trophée des Champions successes.

The forward has won three-consecutive Ligue 1 Uber Eats Player of the Season awards and topped the scoring charts each of the last-four seasons. This season, he became the first player in Ligue 1 Uber Eats history to top both the scoring and assists charts in the same season.
