Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe has opened up on the experience of playing alongside seven-time Ballon d'Or award winner, Lionel Messi at Paris, while also opening up on his future at the club.

PSG completed arguably the biggest signing in football history when they signed Messi from Barcelona on a free transfer after the Catalan giants confirmed that they would not be able to offer the striker a new deal.

While the much vaulted trio of Messi, Mbappe and Neymar are yet to hit their stride as a partnership this season, the Frenchman has admitted that he is just happy to learn from the Argentina icon.

"It's a big pleasure for me to say to my kids, to my friends, I play with him [Messi]. We have to enjoy seeing him in Paris ... It's an amazing moment in the history of the game," he told CNN.

The 23-year-old's future at the club has come under question, considering that his current contract expires next summer with the player yet to agree to a new deal, amid heavy interest from Real Madrid.

The Los Blancos had even submitted a staggering bid for the youngster, with the player revealing in the past that at the time he wanted to leave PSG. However, Mbappe for his part has reiterated that he will stay with PSG, atleast for this season.

"I will give everything I have to win the Champions League, the league and the cup. And to give all the pleasure to the fans, because they deserve it. I was honest. I gave a feeling, I gave what I have in my heart. I'm happy to stay ... it's my city too. I'm French ... I want to win everything this season," the striker added.

The 2018 World Cup winner has continued his good form in front of goal this season too, netting 15 goals in 24 appearances in all competitions so far.
