We will be trying to bring the trophy back to France," Mbappé replied when asked about his short-term objectives.

Mbappé dreaming of Tokyo

Mbappé added that being part of France's Olympic team in Tokyo later this summer would also be a dream come true for him: "For us, having recognition from the whole country is very important. Everyone knows that my dream has always been to take part at the Olympic Games and I hope I will be able to realise one of my lifelong dreams".

Mbappé ended his interview with TF1 responding to a question about his private life: "Of course I would like to have a little privacy at times, I-m only human, but I have no right to complain. I am living a life that I could only have dreamed of".
