Kylian Mbappe has revealed that he is in talks over a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
The 22-year-old’s existing deal in the French capital is due to expire in the summer of 2022, and a number of clubs, including Real Madrid and Liverpool, are said to be keeping a close eye on developments.
Mbappe has scored 106 goals in 147 appearances for PSG in all competitions, including 16 strikes in 23 outings during the 2020-21 campaign.
The France international has confirmed that contact talks are underway but has admitted that he has not yet made up his mind over whether to commit his long-term future to the club.
Mbappe told Telefoot Chaine: “We are talking with the club. I said that I am reflecting on it too, because I think it is a signature, that if I sign, I am investing myself for the long term into PSG.
“And I am very happy here. I have always been very happy here. The fans and the club have always helped me. And I will always be very thankful to the club. I want to think about what I want to do in the coming years, where I want to be, and that is now I will be reflecting on it.
“I think that yes, I will have to soon make a decision. But for now I am in deep thought. If I had the answer today, I would have given it today. This is not a desire to take up time, it is just to really think about it.
“I don’t want to sign a contract and then one year later say I want to leave because I did not want to sign the contract. If I sign, it is to stay. That is why it requires thought.”
The World Cup winner scored a brace in PSG’s 4-0 win over Montpellier on Friday night.
