Kylian Mbappe "forgotten" by Real Madrid in Champions League celebrations
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez told Kylian Mbappe he had been "forgotten" by the Spanish giants after their Champions League final victory over Liverpool on Saturday night.
Mbappe recently found himself in hot water with Los Blancos after choosing to remain at Paris Saint-Germain until 2025, despite strong rumours he would join Carlo Ancelotti's side.
Madrid were understood to be surprised and furious by the agreement, but Perez didn't seem too fussed as he discussed the French superstar after the La Liga side's surprise win in Paris. Vinicius scored the only goal of the game midway through the second half as Madrid clinched their 14th European Cup at the expense of Jurgen Klopp's side.
"Real Madrid will always keep working on having the best players," Perez told Spanish TV outlet Movistar afterwards. "But Mbappe is forgotten now. It's fine. Madrid had a perfect season. It's a subject that's forgotten."
Reports earlier this month suggested that Mbappe had agreed personal terms with the La Liga champions. However, no paperwork had been signed, allowing PSG the opportunity to keep him at Parc des Princes.
Against the odds, that is exactly what happened as the World Cup winner put pen to paper on a new three-year deal worth £42.5m per annum, according to Marca.
That is in addition to a £153m bonus for choosing to stay in the French capital, where he now also has 100 per cent ownership of his lucrative image rights.
"I am convinced that here I can continue to grow at a club that provides everything necessary to perform at the highest level," PSG forward Mbappe said after signing his new deal.

"I am also delighted to continue to play in France, the country where I was born, where I have grown up and where I have made my name."
Real Madrid might not have Mbappe, but they do have a 14th European Cup after a 1-0 success over Liverpool. PSG will hoping their French talent can finally lead them to the most coveted prize in club football at some point in the next three years.
