Kylian Mbappe has hinted that he could leave Paris Saint-Germain next summer as the Frenchman inches towards the end of his contract and continues to be linked with a free transfer to Real Madrid

The forward is one of the most coveted footballers in the world today, having scored 139 goals in 187 games across competitions since joining PSG from Monaco in 2017.

After scoring four goals for France in an 8-0 demolition against Kazakhstan, Mbappe was questioned about his future, and hinted that he could move away from the Parc des Princes next summer.

He told TNT Brasil: "I have spent five extraordinary years here, I have taken advantage of every moment and I continue to do so. I am happy both on the pitch and in my personal life. Now there are many things, great challenges and I have already spoken about that."

Pressed on whether he will still be at PSG beyond the end of the 2021-22 campaign, the former Monaco star added: "I'm here, I'm still here, I'm here this season."

Mbappe will be free to negotiate a pre-contract with potential suitors if he does not sign an extension at PSG before the turn of the year. However, his mother offered fresh hopes of a renewal when speaking to Le Parisien in October.

"We are currently in talks with PSG and things are going well," said Fayza Lamari. "Will we come to an agreement? One thing is certain: he will give his all until the end to win the Champions League."
