The 24-year-old gave an update on his future after helping PSG clinch a record 11th Ligue 1 title at the weekend.

Kylian Mbappe vowed to remain at Paris Saint-Germain for 2023/24 after winning his fifth league title with the Parisian club last weekend to dispel renewed transfer links with Spanish club Real Madrid.

The France captain assisted Lionel Messi’s goal in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Strasbourg. The stalemate secured the Ligue 1 title for PSG, with one game to spare.

Later on Sunday, Ligue 1 announced Mbappe had won a fourth straight Player of the Season award – shattering ex-PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s record of three Player of the Season accolades in the French league between 2013 and 2016.

“I want to thank the players, the staff, all the people working in the shadows,” Mbappe said.

“I’ve always wanted to leave a mark. I did not expect to win so much so early, but I’m happy to make history in my country.”

As for his future, the 24-year-old added: “I’m happy and I’ll be here next season.”

Mbappe is under contract at PSG until 2024 and has the option to extend it by a further year. There were rumors of a renewed attempt from Real Madrid to sign him this summer, but it appears that may remain on hold until 2025 – the year when the Frenchman can become a free agent.
