Mbappe Hints at PSG Exit after Sweeping French Awards

Kylian Mbappe has sensationally revealed he could quit Paris Saint-Germain this summer after sweeping the French football awards on Sunday.

The French World Cup winner dropped the transfer revelation on Sunday night after receiving the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award.

“This was the only title that I was missing. I am truly very happy,” Kylian Mbappe said during his acceptance speech at the UNFP Awards in Paris.

“I want to dedicate it the president, I know that he was affected by a tragedy this year.

“I want to thank all of the people who put together this league. I succeeded in adapting in my first year, to change position this year.

“There were some disappointments, but that is part of football. This is a very important moment for me.

“I am arriving at the second turning point in my career. I have discovered an enormous amount of things here.

“It is maybe the moment to have more responsibilities, maybe at PSG, with pleasure, or elsewhere for a new project. In any case thanks everyone!”

Mbappe scored a league high 32 goals as PSG retained their title

Mbappe, who also won the young player of the year award, opted against clarifying his comments further when asked to do so in the mixed zone at the glitzy awards gala, where he was presented with his award by Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

“I said what I had to say,” Mbappe added.

“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 cost PSG a whopping £165m when they turned his initial season-long loan from Monaco into a permanent deal last summer.

The 20-year-old has won the Ligue 1 title for the past three years in succession having guided Monaco to glory during the 2016/17 campaign.

His league-high 32 goals in 28 Ligue 1 appearances this season helped him to a total of 38 in all competitions at club level.
