The French star has been linked with various teams in Europe, after his great performances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Paris Saint-Germain and France national team superstar Kylian Mbappe has put fans at ease by saying he will not live his team in the time being.

The French Ligue 1 star has been linked with many big clubs around Europe after he displayed great abilities during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

But he says he respects his team so much, that being eliminated from the UEFA Champions League is a big problem, and he doesn’t want to add his personal case to it.

“Now there will be many people who will doubt this, but I continue to believe in this project,” he told Gianluca Di Marzio.

“Next season I’ll be here, that is for certain, but I don’t want to talk about my future.”

“With all the problems this elimination brought, I don’t want my personal situation to worsen our present situation,” he added.

Barcelona target Nicolas Pepe will leave Lille this summer

Lille OSC manager Christophe Galtier announced that Nicolas Pepe "will leave" in the summer amid reported interest from Barcelona.

His team defeated Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16.

But on Wednesday, they were defeated 3-1, being kicked out of the competition because of the away goal rule.

“We’re in a state of shock. There are no words, I didn’t sleep. I believe the same happened to everyone else,” he said.

“We had worked hard to get to this point. We’re disappointed but we’ll keep our heads up to finish the season the best way possible.”

“Honestly, it’s hard to give it too much thought because the Champions League was our goal,” he continued.

“The stadium was full for a magnificent occasion, we spoiled the party. We didn’t want to ruin it but in the end, we did.”
