Mbappe spoke in fluent Spanish during an interview with ESPN Argentina after his latest run-out for PSG, while insisting that he has yet to make a final decision on his future.

"I said on French television that I had not made my decision, he recalled," said the World Cup winner. "I am calm. I am finishing my season and I am well in my head. We will see what will happen.

"I play with Messi, I have a lot of fun playing with him and we will see after."

"I have the chance to play with him. It's an honour. I am learning a lot with him. He's a unique player, a legend who will remain in the history of football. It's a pleasure for me."
