After PSG missed out on another Ligue 1 title over the weekend, Kylian Mbappe opened up on his future plans.

Kylian Mbappe wants to see Paris Saint-Germain to build a ‘solid project’ that would enable him to compete for the biggest titles.

The 22-year-old scored his 27th goal of the campaign in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Brest to finish as Ligue 1’s top scorer for a third consecutive season. He also won the French league’s Player of the Season for the second time.

Despite Mbappe’s contributions, it wasn’t enough. Lille’s 2-1 win over Angers on the same day dethroned PSG as Ligue 1 champions, ensuring France of a new league winner for the first time since 2017.

Now Mbappe, who is reportedly linked with a summer move to Real Madrid, has opened up on his future.

“Everyone knows I have a deep connection to the club,” he told Canal Plus.

“I want to thank them because when I come here I am no one. They gave me more confidence than I deserved. I have always been grateful to the officers and the club.

“What I want is to win, and for there to be a solid project around me. It is the most important. I eat and live football and the sports project is very important.

“There is only one club that wins the Champions League every year, but you have to feel that you are leaving with a team that wants to win.

“We will discuss with the club and we will see what will happen. Either way, I’ve always been happy here. I understand that everyone is waiting for my answer. We’ll do things in order.”
