The French superstar insists he is not looking to leave Parc des Princes.

Kylian Mbappe is eager to win the Champions League but says he won’t leave Paris Saint-Germain to claim the trophy.

The 24-year-old became PSG’s top-scorer of all time when he scored in the last minute of his side’s 4-2 win over Nantes on Saturday.

By scoring his 201st goal for the Parisians, Mbappe achieved another milestone at the club. The Champions League is the only major trophy that Mbappe hasn’t been able to claim.

The France international received UCL’s silver medal when PSG lost 1-0 against Bayern Munich in the 2020 final. 

The two sides will meet again in the second leg of their last-16 clash on Wednesday. But Mbappe says the result of that game won’t have an impact on his future at PSG.

“I think if I read my future it’s [winning] the Champions League, and I’m not disrespecting the club. I will have gone very far,” the striker said on Sunday.

“I am here, I am very happy. I’m very happy here, and for the moment I’m not thinking about anything else but making Paris Saint-Germain happy.”

He added: “It’s a good moment for me [becoming PSG’s all-time top scorer], but for the team, the good moment is the three consecutive victories after the defeat against Bayern and that’s the most important thing.

 “Of course, I’m happy, it’s important for the team. But the most important thing is that the team has got its head together and is ready for the challenge in Munich on Wednesday.”

PSG go into the second leg being 1-0 behind on aggregate. After the Bayern clash at Allianz Arena, Mbappe and co will return to Ligue 1, where they take on Brest next Saturday.
