Real Madrid target Mbappe: If I renew with PSG it'll be for a long time

PSG ace Kylian Mbappe admits his contract is now up for discussion.

The forward's contract at the Parc des Princes set to expire in 2022, with clubs like Real Madrid are lying in wait.

After scoring two goals against Montpellier on Friday night, the French international spoke about his future to the press.

"We're in talks with the club to find a project. I'm thinking about it because I think, if I renew, it'll be for a long time," Mbappe said.

"I'm very happy here, I always have been happy here. The fans, the club... they've always helped me. That's why I'll always be grateful to the club.

"But I want to think about what I want to do in the coming years, where I want to be.

"We'll have to make a decision soon, but I'm just thinking about it now. If I had an answer today, I'd have said it today.

"But it's not a question of saving time, it's simply about reflection.

"I don't want to sign a contract and say I want to leave a year later because I didn't want to sign the contract. No. If I sign, it's to stay. And that warrants reflection."
