The French World Cup winner will lead his national team at Euro 2024 in Germany next month, after Didier Deschamps named his squad for the tournament.

Mbappe was widely expected to leave the Paris club, having previously snubbed the offer of a contract to stay with the Ligue 1 giants.

He was also denied a fairytale ending at PSG after his team was knocked out of the Champions League, the only trophy that seemingly eluded Mbappe during his seven years at the club, by Borussia Dortmund .
