Kylian Mbappe Drops Huge Hint At Move Away From PSG

Kylian Mbappe has shocked everyone by using winning the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award as the perfect opportunity to announce he could be ready to leave PSG.

There isn't much Kylian Mbappe hasn't won in football and he's still only 20 years old. Exactly where his career can eventually take him is anyone's guess.

Already he's become a French champion with two clubs, winning Ligue 1 three years in a row, been the league's top scorer, won multiple cups and with France he won the World Cup last year, becoming only the second teenager to score in the final.

One thing he's yet to get his hands on is the Champions League. Weirdly the closest he's come was with Monaco after he helped lead them to a surprising semi-final in their incredible title winning season.

PSG's penchant for messing up in Europe continued this season with their loss to Manchester United, in which Mbappe led the frontline in the absence of Neymar.

The Brazilian's injury this season allowed the 20 year old to become more prevalent in the team and on Sunday night he was named as Ligue 1's player of the year.

Instead of being a moment of celebration for his club though he used his speech as a chance to drop a potentially huge transfer hint, saying:

"This is a very important moment for me. I am arriving at the second turning point in my career. I have discovered an enormous amount of things here. It is maybe the moment to have more responsibilities, maybe at PSG, with pleasure, or elsewhere for a new project. In any case thanks everyone!"

Asked about his comments by the press after the Paris native doubled down on the suggestion saying, "I said what I had to say. 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."

His words will alert Real Madrid, any other club who could afford him, with the Spanish side expecting a big outlay on transfers this summer after a really poor season.

One suggestion in France has been that the former Monaco ace doesn't want to leave the Parc des Princes but wants more say on transfers.

Will Mbappe actually leave PSG this summer?
