Kylian Mbappe says the dream of one day playing for Real Madrid is “never over” despite opting to sign a new contract and stay at Paris St-Germain.
The Frenchman rejected a move to the Spanish champions last weekend weekend to sign a new three-year contract PSG.
But Mbappe, who’s 23, has not ruled out a move to Madrid later in his career.
“You never know what can happen in the future,” he told BBC Sport.
“I give up to think about the future, I only think about the present and the present is I signed a new contract for three years more at Paris St-Germain.”
Asked if signing the contract meant the Real Madrid dream was over, Mbappe said: “Never over.”
Mbappe said his decision to remain at PSG was partly based on sentimental reasons and believes there are “more wonderful chapters to write” at the club.
“Leaving my country isn’t the right thing,” he said. “There is a sentimental aspect to this. It is my country.
“The ongoing project has changed as well. That has made me want to stay here because I don’t think my story is over yet.
“That goes for me collectively and individually. I think there are many more wonderful chapters to write.”
Mbappe started his career at Monaco before moving to PSG in 2017, initially on loan before joining permanently.
Since being at the club he has won four Ligue 1 titles and three French Cups.
