PSG star Kylian Mbappe surprised many on Sunday night when he suggested that he might be open to leaving the French club in search of new opportunities.
Mbappe, who was awarded the Ligue 1 Player of the Year Award as the best player in France’s top league this season, gave a speech after receiving the award ceremony and hinted that he might be ready to move on from PSG.
The 20-year-old was quoted as having said, “It’s a very important moment for me, I come to a turning point in my career. I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is maybe the moment to have more responsibility.”
Mbappe went on to say, “I hope that can perhaps be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project.”
This could mean that Mbappe will finally make a long-awaited move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, a club that he has often expressed a desire to play for. His comments also suggest that perhaps he is tired of playing with another superstar in Neymar Jr. and that he would prefer to establish himself elsewhere.
In addition to Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City have also been mentioned as possible destinations for the French phenom, who scored 38 total goals in 42 games in the 2018-19 season.
Possible fits for Mbappe will feverishly try to sign him this summer, hoping to land one of the premier talents in all of soccer.
