Kylian Mbappe's transfer plan explained by PSG club ambassador

Kylian Mbappe's transfer plan has been outlined by Paris Saint-Germain ambassador Youri Djorkaeff.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes over the years.

Real Madrid have long been interested in the striker and Zinedine Zidane is a known fan of his compatriot.

But Liverpool have also emerged as a potential destination and Mbappe has previously spoke up about his admiration for the Reds.

Last month, reports emerged that Mbappe had told PSG chiefs he wanted to leave at the end of the season.

His contract expires in the summer of 2022 but if the French champions want to recoup some of the £166m they spent on him, they must sell next year.

And that appears part of the plan, according to Djorkaeff, though the Ligue 1 giants must win the Champions League first.

Mbappe is entering his fourth year at PSG after signing from Monaco back in 2017, initially on loan.

Despite still being just 21, he has won everything trophy possible in France - scoring 96 times in 130 appearances along the way.

But the Champions League eludes him, coming close last season when PSG lost to Bayern Munich in the final.

And club ambassador Djorkaeff believes Mbappe will not stay in Paris forever.

"I think that Mbappe will always have the right opportunity," he told Parisfans.

“Now he's on a project. He is entering his fourth year in Paris, he's a young player. I don't see him staying at PSG for 10 years.

"His future is to win titles on all continents, something few French people have done.

“Last year he had a great opportunity to win the Champions League. Unfortunately, he didn't. This year he will still have the opportunity.
