Mbappe fuels PSG exit talks

Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid Kylian Mbappe has hinted he may have to leave the club after lifting the 2018/19 Ligue 1 Player of the Year award.

Mbappe, 20, enjoyed a remarkable season with PSG after lifting the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France in the off-season and dropped a huge indication that he may look towards a new challenge.
 
After scoring 32 goals in just 28 appearances in the French top-flight en route to his third consecutive league winners medal he claimed he's ready for 'more responsibility'.
 
 
"I feel that it is time for me to have more responsibility," he said at the awards gala, as per The Guardian. "Maybe here in Paris, I would be happy, or maybe somewhere else then. I am at a turning point in my career."
 
The World Cup winner scooped both Ligue 1 Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year at the ceremony but his statement to reporters in the mixed zone afterwards was even more revealing than his speech.
 
"I said what I had to say," he added. "When you are in such an occasion you can send messages, I think I have sent mine.
 
"If I speak more it will be too much and that is not the message I wish to send."
 
Overall, Mbappe has scored 38 goals and registered 17 assists in 42 games across all competitions.
