Kylian Mbappe: PSG say France striker will remain at club next season

Kylian Mbappe: PSG say France striker will remain at club next season

With players like Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani, which continue to form part of the most expensive strike force in the history of football, the Parisian club have not reached their expectations and the future of the two stars is now in doubt. However it is understood that talks have already taken place with PSG to improve and lengthen his current contract. "It (the award) is an important moment for me, a turning point in my career. The moment of having more responsibilities, maybe at PSG, maybe elsewhere". "Or maybe elsewhere with a new project".

He was named as the Ligue 1 player of the season on Sunday, but did not deny that a potential move away from France could be in the offing.

He said after winning the main award: "It's truly a pleasure, the only trophy I was missing!"

Mbappe joined the Ligue 1 champions in 2017 from Monaco on loan a reported fee of £166m.

"When you are in such an occasion you can send messages, I think I have sent mine".

'If I speak more it will be too much and that is not the message I wish to send'.

Mbappe is the top scorer in Ligue 1 this season with 32 goals.

But since Zinedine Zidane's return to the Real dugout earlier this year, rumours about Mbappe joining his fellow Frenchman at the Santiago Bernabeu have intensified.

"With a shared ambition to leave their mark on European football, the 50th year of PSG is eagerly anticipated for everyone to write a great page of history together for the club".

The latest report about negotiations over a 12-month extension getting underway include detail that the club are ready to give Mbappe more responsibility and they share his sentiments to further improve the side. Mbappe wants his voice to count at the club and he wants to be consulted regarding player recruitment - both in regard to PSG's strategy and their planning.

PSG sealed a sixth French league title in seven years but failed to defend its French Cup and French League Cup crowns this season.
