Kylian Mbappe will remain a PSG player after signing a new contract with the French side despite huge interest from Real Madrid.
Mbappe had looked set to leave the French capital when his contract expired over the summer. Los Blancos had seemed to be his preferred destination, but a sudden u-turn has seen the Frenchman pen a new deal with the French champions.
The 23-year-old, after signing the deal, said: “I am very happy to stay at PSG in France. I always said Paris is my home, I hope we continue to play football and win trophies together. Thanks for everything."
Mbappe's new deal will see him remain at PSG until 2025.
However, La Liga are unhappy with the recent developments – and they have released a statement. "On Kylian Mbappe's possible announcement to stay at PSG, La Liga wishes to state that this type of agreement attacks the economic stability of European football, putting at risk hundreds of thousands of jobs and the integrity of the sport, not only in European competitions, but also in domestic leagues."
The statement also confirmed that La Liga will "file a complaint against PSG before UEFA, the French administrative court and fiscal authorities and European Union authorities."

Mbappe joined PSG in 2017 after bursting onto the scene with Monaco the season beforehand.
The Frenchman has since gone onto to win the World Cup as he has blossomed into one the best players on the planet. Mbappe has also been dominant in Ligue 1, but PSG have missed out on their ultimate goal – the Champions League.
Mbappe has bagged 168 goals during his spell at PSG, only 23 behind their all-time top goalscorer Edinson Cavani.
The announcement for Mbappe's new deal took place before PSG's final game of the season against Metz.
Mbappe started the game in a star-studded line up that saw the youngster flanked by Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Angel Di Maria.
