Mbappe talked about his future at PSG after scoring two goals in a 4-0 victory over Montpellier.


Paris Saint-Germain

have been making progress on new deals for

Kylian Mbappe

and Neymar, neither player has so far committed to fresh terms.

However, Mbappe has said that he is happy at PSG and his contract is going to expire in the summer of 2022.

“I’ve had this question before,” Mbappe said after scoring two goals in a 4-0 victory over Montpellier on Friday night.

“We are discussing with the club to find a project. I am thinking about it because if I sign, it will be in order to invest myself in the long term.

“I am very happy here. The supporters and the club have always helped me. I’m going to think about what I want to do in the next few years, where I want to be.

“I am reflecting on it, not trying to buy time or anything like that. If I sign, I will stay, so I have to think about it.”

 Mauricio Pochettino was then asked about Mbappe’s comments.

"I'm not here to comment on what my players are saying,” he said. “But it's clear that these are decisive words. He is a fundamental player for PSG. I hope he will be here with us for many more years.”

Mbappe sometimes was not at his best and admits that he deserved some of the criticism.

“The truth is that I was not good. It's normal when you don't score and people are used to you scoring.

“I know my country better than anyone. I know the mentality of the people here and I knew this difficult period was coming.”
