Kylian Mbappe has opened the door to a summer transfer away from PSG by admitting there is no prospect of him remaining at Parc des Princes for the remainder of his career.

Liverpool and Real Madrid are both credited with an interest in signing the 25-year-old attacker, who is out of contract at the end of the season and will be available as a free agent as a consequence.

Rumours over the player’s future have been building since the summer, when he refused to take out an option in his PSG contract that would have seen him remain with the club until 2025.

Mbappe now finds himself in a similar situation as the one he did in 2022, when he elected to sign a new deal in the French capital and snub the chance to move to Real Madrid.

The difference is that now Liverpool are offering him a third option.

And Mbappe admits that he is thinking about moving.

Speaking to GQ, he said: “Many great players who have shaped the history of football have left Europe this summer and we are entering a new era. It’s become part of the cycle of this sport and at some point it will be my turn to leave. I’m not worried about these changes. I’m simply thinking about continuing my career and following my own path.”

Mbappe has spoken of his admiration for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp before, and he has hinted that changing coach is something that appeals to him because it ensures that he is always learning.

“I think that beyond the technical aspects of becoming better with, say, your left foot or your head, what is most important is broadening your vision of the sport,” he admitted.

“By playing for six or seven different coaches, I’ve learned six or seven different ways of doing my job. I developed different facets of my game and constantly grew. The right frame of mind requires being able to listen and adapt.”

With 238 goals, Mbappe is already PSG’s all-time leading scorer and the will of the Ligue 1 leaders is to retain him for as long as possible.
