At the moment, Real Madrid are keeping tabs on happenings to at the Parc des Princes, with reports suggesting they are eager to sign one of Neymar or Mbappe this summer transfer window.

Neymar and Mbappe arrived PSG in 2017 for £198m and £166m respectively, but the duo are looking worried at the club, with Mbappe revealing his plans after receiving his prize as Ligue 1 player of the year.

"This is a very important moment for me, I am arriving at maybe the first or second turning point in my career," the youngster stressed,

"I have learned so much here, and I feel it's maybe the time to have more responsibility. Maybe at PSG, that would give me great pleasure, or maybe elsewhere for a new project,” Mbappe added.

But club boss PSG boss Thomas Tuchel refused making any pledge that the two stars will remain at PSG going forward.

"As a coach, I do want them to continue, but this is football, we are not naive," Tuchel was quoted as saying during a press conference.

"Many clubs want to transfer many players and the market is crazy, but if you ask me, the coach, yes, I want them here next season. But if they are not, we will find solutions.

"Mbappe has goals, he is very intelligent and maybe he thought it was time to say it, but he is invited, like all PSG players, to assume responsibilities.

"It is not necessary to make a speech to say that. He's a special guy, he wants to score, score and score, win all the possible titles. We have to accept it, I'm not angry,” Tuchel noted, even as he quickly outlined what PSG need to excel in the Champions League.

"It's always my goal to grow and learn, that's why I'm here.

"It's a gift to be a coach, it was important for me to work in another country, it's a great experience, but it's just the beginning.

"The last phase of the season was a bit difficult, we made an analysis, the club knows it and now we have to improve,” the German boss submitted.
