Kylian Mbappe has admitted he isn’t sure if staying with Paris Saint-Germain is the best option for his career.

The 22-year-old had another standout campaign on an individual basis in France. He claimed the Ligue 1 Golden Boot and Player of the Year awards, but the season was ultimately disappointing. PSG lost the league title and crashed out of the Champions League semi-finals.

The Parisians may have won the Coupe de France and Trophee des Champions, but that may not be enough to entice Mbappe to stay.


Most of Europe’s top clubs, including Real Madrid, are interested in the striker and would make a series of tempting offers if he were to seek a transfer once his PSG contract ends in the summer of 2022.

“I don’t necessarily need to go fast,” Mbappe told France Football on his future.


“I have to make the right decision, which is difficult, and give myself every chance to make up my mind. I am in a place where I like myself, where I feel good. But is this the best place for me? I don’t have the answer yet.

“I know that a project with or without me is not quite the same for the club.

“But PSG understand my feelings. Probably also because they know that I will not sneak.


“Being a great player also proves itself outside the field where you have to know how to do things cleanly and with class.”

Mbappe’s current focus, though, lies in preparing for France’s Group F opener against Germany in Euro 2020 on Tuesday.
