Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé reportedly confessed to Monaco president
Vasilyev said (as quoted by Marca): "He told me: 'Vadim, deep inside me, I feel it's too early. I have only played for a year in my country, I'm Parisian, I don't want to leave my country like that. I want to become a great player here. Real Madrid will wait...It's my feeling."
Mbappé's decision to stay in France has so far been justified, winning the Ligue 1 title two years in a row with Les Parisiens, while the France international has grown into one of the greatest talents in the world.
He added: "They will knock on your door, the entire Santiago Bernabéu stadium will applaud you when you get there, you don't need to force it."
PSG travel to Spain to take on Madrid in match day five of the Champions League group stages, and Mbappé will be keen to impress his potential future employers on the biggest stage, with the French side already close to sealing their passage to the European knock-out rounds.
