Kylian Mbappe sends message to PSG after Lille win Ligue 1

Kylian Mbappe has told Paris Saint-Germain’s board that he wants the French team to build ‘a solid project’ after missing out on the Ligue 1 title to Lille.

PSG sealed a 2-0 win over Brest on the last day of the French top flight on Sunday but it wasn’t enough as Lille beat Angers to clain their first Ligue 1 title since 2011.

Mbappe finished the season as the league’s top scorer with 27 goals but PSG endured a disappointed end to the campaign with their Champions League elimination and their failure to retain the trophy.

Mbappe has just one year remaining on his current contract this summer and the French forward says 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 told Canal Plus.

‘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. In any case, I have always been happy here and I have had four exceptional years here, we are very clear with the club.

‘The club knows my relationship with it, this city, this country. We are going to do things in the way they should be done, in one way or another.

‘I cannot say what needs to be done, I am just a player, but I think that people have seen, everyone has seen. ‘When everyone sees, it is easier to draw conclusions, but there is no problem. We lost the title, but now, we have to concentrate on the future.’

Meanwhile, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is adamant that Mbappe will remain at the Ligue 1 team.

‘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.’
