Kylian Mbappe claims he still hasn’t decided whether to stay at PSG beyond this season

Kylian Mbappe teases that ‘NEW ELEMENTS’ could determine whether he stays at PSG after starring in their latest victory… as the forward continues to be linked with a blockbuster move to Real Madrid

  • Kylian Mbappe scored twice and provided three assists on Sunday for PSG
  • His future remains a major talking point as his contract at PSG expires in June
  • The Frenchman has insisted that he is yet to make his mind up on his future
  • However, he’s hinted that ‘new elements’ could affect his decision this summer 

Kylian Mbappe is keeping people guessing about his future after he delivered a cryptic message following PSG’s 5-1 victory against Lorient on Sunday.

The striker was at his brilliant best at the Parc des Princes, scoring twice and registering three assists as Mauricio Pochettino’s side moved one step closer to winning Ligue 1.

Mbappe was subsequently quizzed about whether he would be staying at PSG or moving on from the French club in the summer.

‘I haven’t made the decision, but there are new elements,’ he told reporters.

‘What are they? New elements [laughs]. I’m calm, trying to make the best decision with my loved ones.’

PSG have made it clear that they want to keep the 23-year-old, but time is running out for them to convince him to commit his future to the club.

The World Cup winner is out of contract in June, and has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants tried to sign Mbappe last year, and they look set to make another move for him when the transfer window re-opens.

Real Madrid and PSG faced one another in the Champions League last month, with Carlo Ancelotti’s team coming out on top across two legs, despite Mbappe scoring in both matches.

The speculation regarding Mbappe’s future does not appear to be affecting his performances on the pitch.

Following his virtuoso display in the French capital on Sunday, he now had 17 goals and 13 assists to his name in Ligue 1 this term, meaning he has been directly involved in more goals than any other player in the division.
