The 20-year-old has enjoyed a stunning campaign, scoring a league-high 32 goals – as well as laying on seven assists – in just 28 appearances, out-shining club poster boy Neymar.
He was awarded the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award at a ceremony on Sunday night, though captured the attention of Europe’s biggest clubs by hinting he was considering his future.

‘I want to thank all of the people who put together this league. I succeeded in adapting in my first year, to change position this year. There were some disappointments, but that is part of football.

‘This is a very important moment for me. I am arriving at the second turning point in my career. I have discovered an enormous amount of things here.
‘It is maybe the moment to have more responsibilities, maybe at PSG, with pleasure, or elsewhere for a new project. In any case thanks everyone!’

Man City tried to sign Mbappe while he was at Monaco, but he chose PSG (Picture: Getty)Mbappe’s comments understandably took many people by surprise, and he was asked to clarify what he meant afterwards in the mixed zone – though remained coy.
He added: ‘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.’
