Kylian Mbappe has admitted that he is unlikely to ever play for Tottenham ahead of a huge year in deciding his future.

Real Madrid have long been the favourites to land the French striker, who is out of contract at Paris Saint-Germain in June.

But a spanner was thrown into Los Blancos’ works when Spiderman actor Tom Holland tried to secure Mbappe’s services for his club, Tottenham. However, the deal appears to have collapsed.

“I don't think I will play for Tottenham in my life,” Mbappe remarked to CNN.

“[Holland] asked me about it, but no, no. It's a great club... And I'm sure they will make something good this season with [Antonio] Conte. He’s a great manager.”

PSG face Real Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League in the early months of 2022 and Mbappe stated that he will be seeing out the campaign in France, at least.

“I think it’s not for me to talk about at the moment,” he added. “We are coming into the most important part of the season and we are playing Real Madrid.

“So the only thing I have on my mind is beating Real Madrid in February and March. I’m ready to give everything for PSG.

“I’m really happy [with PSG], I will finish the season [there], 100 per cent. I will give everything I have to win the Champions League, the league, the cup - because the players and the fans deserve it and I think I deserve to win something great with PSG.”
