Paris St-Germain have sent a defiant message to Kylian Mbappe’s suitors, including Manchester United, over the striker’s future in France.
The World Cup winner won the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award on Sunday and hinted in his acceptance speech about “a new project elsewhere”.
And when asked to clarify the comments, the 20-year-old said: “I said what I had to say.”
However, PSG have responded by saying that the club’s “shared history [with Mbappe] will continue next season”, adding that “very strong links unite the club and Mbappe”, who signed from Monaco in 2017.
Having initially moved to Paris on a season-long loan, the deal was made permanent for a fee of around £166m, making him the second most expensive player in history behind PSG team-mate Neymar.
Ole Gunnar’s Solskjaer’s links to the player, come as United look to rebuild their squad ahead of next season after a disastrous campaign that saw them miss out on Champions League qualification.
With Romelu Lukaku being tipped to move on, the Red Devils are after a marquee name to lead their attack – although a big-money swoop for Mbappe now looks increasingly unlikely.
