It has been revealed that French striker, Kylian Mbappe was close to signing for Real Madrid before joining Paris Saint-Germain.

The striker revealed that he held talks with the Spanish giant but no longer dreams of a move.

Mbappe did well to help Monaco win their first title in 17 years last season, after which he joined PSG.

"There were many rumours of a transfer, it's true that we spoke, but I think that's now in the past for me and for Real Madrid.

"I play for PSG now and I am going to defend these colours 100 percent," he said in an interview published Wednesday in Spanish sports daily Marca.

The 19-year-old said he wanted to play for PSG because Paris is his hometown.

"It is like a child from Madrid has the opportunity to play in his team and goes somewhere else, another country. No, I wanted to play for PSG and I am happy for now with how things are going," he added.

"I have time, and as I have said I want to play in the best team in the world and PSG has everything to achieve this. If this team grows with me, there is no reason to leave."
