Kylian Mbappe has hinted on a possible exit from Paris Saint-Germain after suggesting he is open to a new project.

Mbappe, 20, enjoyed a clean sweep of individual accolades in French football on Sunday night, picking up both the Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards.

But the Parisien fans were to fear the worse after accepting the awards, he said via FranceFootball: “It’s a very important moment for me, I’ve come to a turning point in my career.

“I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is perhaps the moment to have more responsibility.

“I hope that can maybe be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or perhaps elsewhere with a new project.”

Mbappe was equally prolific in front of goal scoring 32 goals to help in PSG’s title defence but they shock exit to Man United remains one of their lowest moments in the campaign.

PSG let a two-goal first-leg advantage slip against Manchester United and were eliminated at the last-16 stage.

Mbappe stood by his comments after the ceremony, adding: “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.”

Real Madrid have not hidden their intention to snap up the French ace and his latest statement will further fuel speculations.
