The World Cup winner turned down a free transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu to pen fresh terms at Parc des Princes.

French president Emmanuel Macron has revealed the details of the private conversation he had with Kylian Mbappe before the Paris Saint-Germain star snubbed a transfer to Real Madrid.

Mbappe had been strongly linked with a move to Madrid for well over a year before PSG shocked the world by announcing a new three-year contract for the 23-year-old on May 21.

GOAL reported that Macron played a part in convincing Mbappe to stay in his homeland, and the head of state has now confirmed that he reached out to the World Cup winner in a bid to “defend the country”.
