France international Kylian Mbappe said he is happy at Paris St Germain, but the forward still remains undecided over his future at the Ligue 1 club as rumours continue to swirl over a possible move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

On Tuesday Mbappe scored a late winner as PSG defeated Real Madrid 1-0 in the first leg of the pair's last-16 match-up in the Champions League.

The 23-year-old's PSG contract is due to expire at the end of this season.

"I've not decided my future. I play for Paris Saint Germain, one of the best clubs in the world," Mbappe told broadcaster Movistar after Tuesday's match.

His goal triggered wild celebrations from PSG fans, and Mbappe was asked whether Tuesday's acclaim might play a part in shaping his decision.

"No, I've not decided," he replied. "I give my best and then we will see what happens next season."

PSG turned down an offer of around 160 million euros ($182 million) from Real for Mbappe last August, even though the player had less than a year left on his contract.

PSG planning mega-offer

According to RMC, the Ligue 1 side are planning a further effort to retain the striker and are talking to individuals within the player's close circle. The offer would be similar, in economic terms, to the one rejected by Mbappé during the month of August, just days before the negotiations between Real Madrid and PSG. At present the player maintains that he is focused solely and exclusively on finishing the season in the best possible way and try and deliver PSG the first Champions League in the club's history.

With the 2022 World Cup starting in November, the message from Qatar is that PSG will do all in their powers to retain Mbappé, even if it means making the striker the best paid player in global football.
