Kylian Mbappe rejects Real Madrid, to stay at PSG
Kylian Mbappe has decided to extend his stay at Paris St Germain, French sport daily L’Equipe reported on Saturday.
The France forward, whose current contract expires on June 30, had been widely tipped to join Real Madrid.
L’Equipe said a new contract, which is likely to tie him to the French champions until 2025, had not been signed yet.
Angel Di Maria though will leave the French club when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Season for the 2021-22 campaign, the league said on Saturday.
De Bruyne won the award for the second time after also getting the prize in the 2019-20 season. The Belgium international scored 15 goals and provided seven assists in 29 games this season and has been a key player for City.
The 30-year-old saw off competition from City teammate Joao Cancelo, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min and others.
“There is so much quality in the Premier League and it is a pleasure to be nominated with so many other great players who have had incredible seasons for their clubs,” De Bruyne said.
Earlier on Saturday, teammate Phil Foden was named the league’s best young player of the season for the second year in a row.
