Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo is confident that Kylian Mbappe will not leave the club at the end of the season.

Real Madrid tried to sign the French international, whose current contract expires in June, during the summer transfer window, but the move never made it.

The Spanish club made a series of offers for Mbappe and were ready to pay £ 197m for the 22-year-old but walked away after PSG stalled the deal.

However, Leonardo claim PSG never received a final offer from Real Madrid and are confident that Mbappe will extend his stint at Parc des Princes – instead of signing a pre-contract with another club in January.

“The fact that he stayed was the only thing that could happen,” Leonardo told French television channel Canal Plus.

“We never thought of doing any of this without Kylian. We weren’t happy with Real Madrid’s behavior.”

“We were clear about the offer they made. It wasn’t enough from our point of view. It was less than what we paid for.

“As for your last offer, it never got there.”

Leonardo added: “I don’t see Kylian leaving at the end of this season.

“Mbappe’s relationship with PSG is deep. I don’t think anyone here sees the future without him.”

Mbappe has been in impressive form this season, scoring four goals in five games earlier this season and is expected to start in the Champions League game at Club Brugge on Wednesday.

Poch: PSG no team yet

Paris Saint-Germain are considered to be the team to beat in the Champions League since Lionel Messi joined them in the tight season, but coach Mauricio Pochettino warned he has not yet turned his stellar line-up into a squad.

PSG have signed Messi as Barcelona free agent to put together an impressive attacking trio with Mbappe and Neymar but they have yet to show what they can do together.

“We are not a team yet. We are a club that has recruited a lot of players this summer. There are some big names but we have to develop into a team,” said Pochettino on Tuesday.

“We are a group of players who need to get results. It feels like we (PSG and Chelsea) are the two teams to beat, but Chelsea are the defending champions so they are the team that do it to beat, especially after they’ve strengthened their squad. “
