Kylian Mbappe offers cagey update on PSG contract situation

Kylian Mbappe has said that contract talks between himself and Paris Saint Germain have not progressed.

The striker’s current deal with the French champions expires in the summer of 2022.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, who are reportedly considering the sales of six players this summer in order to finance the transfer of the 22-year-old.

However, if he does fail to agree to new terms with PSG, that could change the nature of the market completely.

On his contract situation, Mbappe told RTL (via Goal): “If it had progressed, I would have come to talk about it already.

“Of course, I will talk about it when I have made up my mind.”

On media speculation and the spotlight he is put under at PSG, Mbappe added: “Of course it [criticism from media] gets tiring, especially when you play for a club in your country and you give everything for your national team.

“After a while it gets tiring.

“It’s different for players who play abroad and only come back here for the national team. I’m there all the time, they speak about me a lot more.

“It’s a different context [to other players] but I knew it would be like that when I signed for Paris. We’ll see.

“Of course it plays a part [the pressure from the media having a bearing on his future] but it’s not just that.

“The most important thing is to feel good where you are, and to have fun every day.”

Mbappe continues to break records in France

A World Cup winner at just 19 years of age, Mbappe has proved himself as one of the world’s best forwards over the last few years.

In March, he became the youngest player ever to reach 100 Ligue 1 goals.

That was a month after he scored a superb hat-trick to help his side defeat Barcelona at Camp Nou in the Champions League last 16.

PSG will surely be desperate to agree a new contract with the Frenchman.
