Kylian Mbappe sparks PSG exit fears
PSG fans have been concerned about Kylian Mbappe’s ongoing future at the club since Sunday night.
Two days ago, Mbappe won the French Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards.
While winning his awards, however, the 20-year-old attacker suggested that he could leave Paris for a fresh challenge.
Mbappe is under contract at the Parc des Princes until 2023. But he told the press on Sunday night:
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.
I hope that can perhaps be at Paris St Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project.

Real Madrid & Mbappe’s price tag
On Tuesday, L’Equipe have turned their focus onto Mbappe’s ongoing future at PSG.
L’Equipe have wondered how much Real Madrid would need to pay to convince PSG to sell Mbappe this summer.
To be clear, L’Equipe aren’t claiming that Real Madrid have posted an official bid for the French World Cup winner.
However, should Los Blancos opt to lodge such a bid, L’Equipe say Mbappe’s price tag would be at least 250 million euros.
