Kylian Mbappe has told PSG’s hierarchy that he wants Paris to build ‘a solid project’ after missing out on the Ligue 1 title to Lille. Parisians sealed a 2-0 victory over Brest on the final day of the French top-flight on Sunday but it wasn’t enough as Lille beat Angers to win their first Ligue 1 trophy since 2011.
France international finished the season as the division’s top scorer with 27 goals but PSG endured a disappointing end to the campaign with their UCL elimination and their failure to retain the league trophy.
Kylian has only a year remaining on his deal this summer and the attacker admits he will not commit his future until he is given guarantees by PSG. ‘Everyone knows how profoundly attached I am to the club. I have always been very thankful towards the president, my different coaches,’ Mbappe said.
‘What I want, is to win, feel like I am somewhere where I can win, where there is a solid project around me. The footballing project is essential. I want to feel like I am part of a team that is going to do something. Then, up to us to show what we can do, we are talking with the club, we will see what happens.’
Meanwhile, PSG’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is adamant that Kylian will remain at the club. ‘For me, Kylian is a PSG player and will be a PSG player. I am not worried,’ he said. ‘Do not worry, let us work. Mbappe is Parisian. He is French, he is Parisian, he is under contract and he wants to stay 100 per cent.’
