Mbappe has formed a strong partnership with Neymar, with the pair propelling PSG to numerous trophies.
There have been recently speculations linking both players away from the French side, but PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi belives they will stay at the club for a long time.
“Neymar and Kylian are some of the best players in the world but it was the team that had a great game, even though Ney was really good,” he told RMC Sport.
“In recent months he has changed in the team. They’re both going to stay, they’re never going to leave!”
