Arsenal and Man Utd target: My career is first and foremost
Kylian Mbappe has said that he will put his career first when making a decision over his future.
The wonderkid has been linked with a move to pretty much every one of Europe’s biggest clubs but he has said that playing time is the most important thing for him right now.
He also said he will not be forced into a move.
But he told beIN SPORTS: “I will make a choice based on my sporting career, and my career is first and foremost. I am at an age where I need to play, and that will be paramount.
“I’m not 35 or 36, an age where I have to manage [my body]. I still have everything to learn – this year was discovery, and now comes the most important step: confirmation.
“I will be the sole decision-maker, and I will not go anywhere where I will be forced to go.”
Mbappe has taken the football world by storm this season. He starred in Monaco’s run to the Champions League semi-finals and played a huge role in Monaco’s Ligue 1 title win.
He was named as Young Player of the Year in France after scoring 26 goals including 15 in the league.
He is just 18-years-old but already has eyes on next year’s World Cup.
He has already received a call up to the national team and wants to go to Russia next summer.
He said that it will have no impact on where he decides to play next season, whether that is Monaco or elsewhere.
He said: “It will not matter. The pressure… I always had it, I learned to handle it, I got used to it and it’s part of my environment.
“It doesn’t disrupt me, or my family, or the club.”
