Young French player, Kylian Mbappe has left room for more speculation on his future after claiming that he is open to changing his mind.

The world cup winner has long been linked with a move to Spanish Giant Real Madrid and he has reciprocated those advances publicly on a number of occasions.

Surprisingly, the young player gave some cryptic answers in a recent interview that will leave fans guessing on what next action would he take further.

He has stated that his “Move from Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain was logical,” according to Paris Match.

“But as we look ahead now, there’s a room or chance for the unexpected. Having fun, the surprise factor – that’s part of the beauty of sport.

“There are some kind of things that’ll happen that can change your mind on some certain situations. It’s impossible to predict what I’ll do in the next 20 years,” he continued.

The world cup winner, without going any further in the interview about his potential move to the Spanish capital, did confirm that, although he will consult his parents, he will be the one who has the final say on his career decisions.

“Based on my parents, on my own decisions they never oppose any decisions I made and they’ve never told me to do anything, even when I was younger,” he said.

“They’ve always said to me that’s the best, if it turns out to be the wrong decision, I can’t hold it against them.”

The young Frenchman has always been open about the failure of Paris Saint Germain to win the UEFA champions league trophy.

“We’ve taken big steps to try and improve the team over the last few years,” he said, We’ve just got to try and correct certain details and try to win.”

“We’ll know that there’s some levels in football like “In football there is a certain amount of luck, but you’ve got to make that luck and at times we haven’t done that. I hope this year will be the one.”

Kylian Mbappe also denied that the inconsistency in the team is due to too much stars on the team, saying just a little they’ll be where people expect them to be.

“Yes I know we’ve got a lot of top players and the result is that we’ve won a lot of titles,” the 22-year-old said.

He added that “Of course you’ve got to accept you won’t be the only star, but I believe it’s a good thing and not a bad thing.”

He went further to describe himself in the interview as a normal person once he leaves the field, but declared that he does take his anger home with him when his team is on the wrong side of a result, as he has “never learnt to lose”.

According to him he doesn’t have or fancy idols, but has great respect for tennis players Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, whom he has met at Roland Garros in the past.

“This kind of people I respect I admire these sorts of sportspeople who have been at the top for many years,” Mbappe said.

“One having to keep that kind of top consistency for years is not what some kind of people could do, that’s just it.”

He also expressed his desire to create history with France by winning back-back world cup trophy, whilst also telling of his strong relationship with Karim Benzema.

The young man said “When you’re close friends It’s a lot easier to create a connection with someone or the person on the field.

“That zeal that you both wants to win,wants to create something,wants to help each other and the team, that makes it more easier for the both players to achieve greater heights.”
