Mbappe wants to be PSG's No. 9, not exit

"I hope that can maybe be at Paris Saint Germain, that would be a great pleasure".

"I feel that it is time for me to have more responsibility", he said at the awards gala, as per The Guardian.

The 20-year-old Frenchman was named the Player of the Season and the Young Player of the Season after scoring 32 goals in 28 games - he still has one more game to play as well.

Mbappe, 20, enjoyed a remarkable season with PSG after lifting the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France in the off-season and dropped a huge indication that he may look towards a new challenge.

After he accepted the award, Mbappe told BeIN Sports, "It (the award) is an important moment for me, a turning point in my career".

"I want to dedicate it the president, I know that he was affected by a tragedy this year". Mbappe wants his voice to count at the club and he wants to be consulted regarding player recruitment - both in regard to PSG's strategy and their planning.

The latest US increase might hit American consumers harder, said Jake Parker, vice president of the U.S. The next consultations are set to take place in Beijing , but the timing is not yet clear.

"I discovered a lot of things here. Then a totally different project with Paris St Germain where I succeeded in adapting my game in my first year and changing position this year".

Asked afterward in the mixed zone to expand on what he meant, Mbappe said that "if I speak again it's too much".

Following PSG's Champions League elimination in March at the hands of Manchester United, Mbappé stated that his intention was to remain with the club but last night's comments have raised questions about the player's future with the striker heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Mbappe cost PSG an incredible £165m when they turned his initial season-long loan from Monaco into a permanent deal last summer.

The World Cup victor has netted 38 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions for PSG this season, including 17 assists. "It was the message I wanted to send".
