PSG star Kylian Mbappe has finally opened up about his transfer saga with Real Madrid in the summer window.

The French World Cup winner was reportedly keen to leave Les Parsiens in the summer transfer window while the Spanish giants also submitted a lucrative offer worth 170m euros.

However, PSG managed to get hold on to Mbappe after rejecting Madrid’s offer.

Speaking to Le Equipe (h/t Daily Mail), Mbappe admitted that he tried to force a move to Los Blancos in the summer.

Mbappe said: “What could make me stay at PSG? We’re far from it… since I wanted to leave Paris this summer. I’m not going to be a hypocrite, my ambition was clear. We will see what happens – my future is not my priority now.

 “I am attached to PSG, and if I had left this summer, it would have only been for Real Madrid.

“I continued playing in August and I had no problem with that. Why did I want to leave? 

“I thought my adventure was over. If I had left, it would only have been to Real Madrid. Leaving PSG was the next logical step.”

The 23-year-old also confirmed that he called his fellow teammate Neymar a Tramp during a recent match in Ligue 1.

There have been reports of Mbappe accusing the Brazilian star of not passing the ball to him during the game against Montpellier.

Mbappe also said that he considered taking a break from the France national team following his disappointing campaign in the Euro 2020.

The former Monaco star added: “The most important thing is the French national team and if the French national team is happier without me, it is like that.

“I received the message, that my ego was what made us lose, that I wanted to take up too much space, and that without me, therefore, we might have won.”
