Kylian Mbappe has signed a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain to extend his time at the Parc des Princes until 2025, the French champions have announced.
Numerous reports earlier in the day claimed the 23-year-old had snubbed Real Madrid's offer in order to sign a new deal with PSG and the news was confirmed later on Saturday.
"Our history is written here. This is Paris," the Parisian outfit posted in a tweet which featured a video of Mbappe at the Parc des Princes.

And on their official website, the club added: "Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce that Kylian Mbappe has signed a three-year contract extension with the Club. The France international striker has put pen to paper on a new deal with the Parisians until 30 June 2025."
Mbappe said: "I would like to announce that I have chosen to extend my contract at Paris Saint-Germain, and of course I am delighted.
"I am convinced that here I can continue to grow at a club that provides everything necessary to perform at the highest level. I am also delighted to continue to play in France, the country where I was born, where I have grown up and where I have made my name."
Mbappe is expected to earn around €1 million per week in his new contract, which is the subject of a complaint from LaLiga.
The French forward, who was out of contract this summer and could have left for free, celebrated the new deal with a hat-trick for PSG in their Ligue 1 clash at home to Metz on Saturday night.
