Mbappe's critics could push him towards PSG exit door

The future of Kylian Mbappe continues to be up for discussion - particularly when it's the player himself who is throwing it into question.

The forward, whose contract with Paris Saint-Germain still hasn't been extended, was part of the France squad that took seven points from nine in their three FIFA World Cup qualifiers over the past week.

But he didn't score and was taken off against Ukraine. As he revealed after the final encounter against Bosnia - a 1-0 win for Les Bleus - the focus on him can be suffocating.

"It can be tiring when you play for a club in your own country, and then you have to also give everything for your national team," Mbappe told RTL.

"It's different for players that play abroad and only come home for internationals.

"I'm in France all the time and that means people talk about me much more.

"It can be tough, but I knew that when I signed for PSG."

When pushed about whether the criticism could impact where he decides to spend his future career, his response was telling.

"Of course it could," Mbappe stated. "It's not just that, though.

"The most important thing is to feel good where you are and enjoy every day."

The 22-year-old was clear, however, that he hasn't made up his mind yet.

"When I've made my decision, I'll let people know," Mbappe noted.
