Real Madrid-bound Kylian Mbappe has confirmed that he will not change his decision about his future at PSG despite leading them to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

On Tuesday night, Mbappe starred for PSG as they beat Barcelona 4-1 to secure a place in the semi-finals of Europe’s premier competition.

After having put in a disappointing display in the first leg last week, the French superstar scored a second-half brace to help his team across the line at Barcelona’s home last night.

During his interaction with the media after the match, Mbappe was asked if he would reconsider the decision over his future now that he and PSG were one step closer to winning the UCL.

Mbappe, though, made it clear that nothing will change, as he said: “No, no, no.”

At the same time, however, the 25-year-old admitted that he still dreams of winning the UEFA Champions League with the Parisian giants.

“I have the dream of winning the Champions League with Paris. For sure. It’s another step now against a great team and we’re going to try to get to Wembley,” he said.

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club.”

Mbappe’s contract with PSG expires at the end of the season and he has decided to leave as a free agent in the summer.

The Frenchman is understood to be headed to Real Madrid with a contract reportedly already signed between the two parties.

An early elimination from the Champions League for PSG would have potentially brought the operation a step closer.

But with them qualifying for the semis and with there being the possibility of the Parisians facing Real Madrid in the finals, an announcement will not come anytime soon.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
