Kylian Mbappe was promised Robert Lewandowski and two other marquee signings during contract extension talks
| Last updated
Kylian Mbappe was promised that Paris Saint-Germain would sign both Robert Lewandowski and Bernardo Silva upon signing his new contract extension.
Mbappe's deal at the Parc des Princes was due to expire in the summer and he looked set to join Real Madrid after months of speculation.
However, the World Cup winner performed a u-turn and ended up committing his future to PSG with a lucrative three-year contract that was announced in May.
It was rumoured that Mbappe's new deal included special player perks and he was able to have a say in sporting matters.
According to journalist Romain Molina, Mbappe's discussions centered around new recruits in the French capital.
He was told that the club, with recruitment headed up by Luis Campos, would move for Lewandowski after he wanted out at Bayern Munich.
However, he ended up joining Barcelona and has scored 14 goals in 12 games for the Blaugrana.
Meanwhile, Bernardo Silva stayed put at Manchester City despite a rift of rumours suggesting he wanted out.
Milan Skriniar of Inter Milan was also touted as a summer addition but he remained at the San Siro, meaning neither of the targets were secured.

Instead, PSG brought in Nuno Mendes, Vitinha, Fabian Ruiz, Carlos Soler, Renato Sanches, Nordi Mukiele and Hugo Ekitike.
Mbappe has scored 12 goals this season but stories about him being unhappy have been persistent.
It has been claimed his relationship with PSG is "completely broken" and he wishes to leave in January.
Real have once again been linked, while Chelsea and Liverpool are believed to be keen should there be the potential for a switch.
His ego has come into question, with Mbappe notably having a rift with Neymar over a penalty against Montpellier earlier this season.
Thierry Henry blasted Mbappe for his behaviour and not putting the team first after he was outspoken about his role under Christophe Galtier.
Recent reports claim the PSG dressing room has become divided, with many angry over the 23-year-old's conduct.
Apparently an "isolated figure", it's said Mbappe's only support comes from France internationals Presnel Kimpembe, Nordi Mukiele and Hugo Ekitike, as well as Achraf Hakimi.
