Kylian Mbappe added: “Regarding my situation for one and a half – two months, we are no longer discussing the extension of the contract, as I said I wanted to leave.”

Kylian Mbappe explained: “If I had left this summer, I would have only gone to Real Madrid.”.

Kylian Mbappe stressed: I thought my adventure with Paris was over, I wanted to discover something else. I’ve been in the French championship for 6 or 7 years. I gave what I tried to give Paris and I think I did it well.

Kylian Mbappe continued: “To leave? My ambition was really for us all to go hand in hand and offer the best possible deal to everyone out the front door. I also wanted to give my team time to find a replacement.”.

Kylian Mbappe: “I had time to grieve over my failed move to Madrid last summer”.

Kylian Mbappe remarked of being forced to make a move to sell: “No, because that would have been ungrateful. Because I should be grateful to the club that welcomed me at the age of 18 and gave me so much for four years.”.

Kylian Mbappe: “When your boss says in front of the whole world that you won’t leave and you won’t go out at that time I was a little worried, I wouldn’t lie to you, I said to myself if I don’t break free now what will happen to me?”.

Kylian Mbappe continued: “If I had left this summer, I would have gone to Real Madrid only.”.

And Kylian Mbappe continued: “The club decided not to sell, I was OK with that, I continued to play throughout the month of August I was performing, I had no problem with that, I am still in a great team and a place where I have been happy for four years.”.

Kylian Mbappe confirmed: “At first I asked for a period of reflection. Before the euro I told the club that I did not want to extend and after the euro I said I wanted to leave.”.

Kylian Mbappe added: “At no time in the season will you see behavior like mine. He didn’t let me go and I just took it easy. I love football so much and I have a lot of respect for the club and I have to not be complacent even in one game.”.

Kylian Mbappe continued: “I wasn’t able to speak during the summer, it wasn’t possible now, I have to do some clarification.”

And Kylian Mbappe added: “A little bit when your ambition is to leave if you stay you will not be happy, but I got over it quickly and unfortunately I was injured in the national team and I came home quickly and I had time to grieve about this departure while there was no agreement, when I came back I scored again and performed Well”.

Kylian Mbappe said: “Messi joining Paris changes your mind? No, I made my decision and it was well thought out.”.
