A long-running saga lasting over a year was ended on Saturday when Mbappe rejected the overtures of Real Madrid to pen an extension at Parc des Princes until 2025.
It was a decision that took the football world by surprise with Mbappe having reportedly given his world to the Los Blancos hierarchy he would move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
His former PSG team mate Angel di Maria, whose time at PSG has now ended, was similarly enthused by Mbappe's decision.
"I am very happy for Kylian, he made the right decision to stay here," said Di Maria, a former Madrid star.
"Paris is a great club, which continues to grow and can do great things. Kylian is close to reaching the 200-goal mark here, to make history. He made a perfect decision."
