French football star Kylian Mbappe hinted at possible exit from Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday, saying that he wants "responsibilities, maybe at PSG, maybe elsewhere".
The 20-year-old has made the switch from Monaco to PSG for 180 million euros in 2017. At the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, Mbappe helped France win the tournament with four goals in seven matches. And this season has witnessed him scoring 32 goals in 29 league games and netting 38 times for PSG, outperforming many of the world's most expensive players.
Mbappe was named as the Ligue 1 player of the season. And he received the award for the young player of the season for three consecutive times. However, Mbappe did not deny a possible transfer away from the French champions.
"It's a very important moment for me, I have come to a turning point in my career," Mbappe said. "I feel it is the moment of having more responsibilities. Hopefully, it will be at PSG. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project."
Mbappe has been regularly linked with a possible move to Real Madrid. Since Frenchman Zinedine Zidane's return to the Real Madrid as coach earlier this year, speculations about Mbappe joining the Santiago Bernabeu have been on the rise.
