Kylian Mbappe has admitted he cannot rule out a stay at Paris Saint-Germain amid rumours to Real Madrid as he inches closer to the end of his contract.

Mbappe has been heavily linked to Los Blancos since last summer after PSG knocked back two offers for his services. With his contract set to expire at the end of the season, Mbappe has spoken about his frustration on his failed exit, and admitted he may yet remain at the Parc des Princes.

"I don't know," Mbappe stated told Amazon Prime. "Today I have to take the time. It is not easy. Either way, I'll be playing for a big club.

"At first I was disappointed [not to leave]. But well, I am not in the third division, I am in a club that wants to win the Champions League. I am Parisian, I have my family, I feel good, I have always said it. I just wanted to discover something else."

The 22-year-old also spoke about the front three at PSG, and admitted the combined performances of himself, Lionel Messi, and Neymar have failed to live up to the hype.

Mbappe admitted the star trio can improve, adding: “We’re aware that we need to do more. When you have three players of that level, you can’t hide from it. We need to do the things that keep us together as a collective. We each have to do our bit."

Asked if he is the "boss" at PSG, Mbappe replied: "It’s difficult. When you play with Neymar and Messi, it’s cheeky to call yourself the boss.

"Now, I’m in a good spell, the team is doing well. We really don’t care about who the boss is. The goal is to put all three of is in the right conditions because we’re game-changers. It’s better that way."
