Real Madrid tried to sign the France international, Kylian Mbappe, whose current deal expires in June, during the summer transfer window but a move failed to materialize.

Although the Spanish club made a series of bids for Mbappe, and were willing to pay £197m for the 22-year-old, but walked away after PSG stalled on the deal.

However, PSG Director Leonardo claims PSG never received a final offer from Real Madrid and is confident Mbappe will choose to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes – rather than sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in January.

“The fact that he’s staying, that was the only thing that could happen,” Leonardo told French television channel Canal Plus. “We never thought about doing all this without Kylian. We were not happy with the behavior of Real Madrid

“We were clear about the offer they made. It was not enough from our point of view. It was less than what we paid. As for their last offer, it never arrived.”

However, Leonardo added: “I don’t see Kylian leaving at the end of this season. Mbappe’s relationship with PSG is deep. I don’t think anyone here sees the future without him.”

Mbappe has been in impressive form this season, scoring four goals in five games at the start of the campaign, and is expected to start Wednesday’s Champions League game at Club Brugge.
