Kylian Mbappe rubbishes reports of PSG exit in January

French striker Kylian Mbappe has rubbished the reports of him wanting to leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in January next year

Mbappe said he was as shocked as everyone else by the news of him wanting to leave PSG, stating that he is happy at the Parisian club and is not looking to force a move anytime soon.

The French star had signed a lucrative three-year contract at PSG earlier this summer making him one of the highest-paid footballers in the world.

"I never asked for my departure in January. The information that came out on the day of the (Champions League match against Benfica), I did not understand it. I am not involved in this information neither directly nor indirectly,"

Mbappe has cleared the air on his future and said he has never asked the club to sanction a move for him in January.

Mbappe was close to joining Real Madrid earlier this summer before extending signing a new contract at PSG.

Mbappe, who joined PSG from French rivals Monaco on loan in 2017, has gone on to become one of the key figures at the club in a short span of time

"Afterwards, we had to deal with it, we had a match to play. I just wanted to say that it's completely false, I'm very happy here," he added.

Mbappe will be next seen in action when PSG lock horns with Ajaccio in the Ligue 1 on Saturday (October 22).
