Mbappe hints it could be time to leave PSG after winning Ligue 1 prize
Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe hinted it could be time to leave the French champions after being named Ligue 1’s Player of the Year by the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP).
The French international suggested it could be time to take on more responsibility in remarks which will alarm Europe’s greatest clubs.
« I think that it is a very important moment for me as I feel that I am approaching a first, or second, defining moment in my vocation, » he said in the wake of gathering the prize.

« I have discovered a lot of things here and I feel that it is perhaps time for greater responsibility. I trust that it will be with PSG, which would be with extraordinary joy, or perhaps somewhere else with another task. »
Asked afterward in the mixed zone to expand on what he meant, Mbappe said that « if I speak again it’s too much. It was the message I needed to send. »
The young PSG hotshot joined the club for 180 million euros from Monaco in 2017 and has rapidly turned into the star of the group, usurping even Neymar.
Real Madrid are among the teams who would be interested in him if he became available, but PSG would not sell for cheap – and they would presumably not sell by any means.
