Kylian Mbappe aims for a Ligue 1 record with PSG next season

Mbappe scored his 29th goal of the season in PSG’s final game on Saturday, a 3-2 loss to Clermont, and once again topped the Ligue 1 scorer list.

Last week, the Frenchman was named Ligue 1’s best player of the season for the fourth time in a row.

The 24-year-old has been the league’s top scorer every year since his move to PSG in 2018, and shared the Golden Boot with Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder in 2019-20.

My top scorer award? I’m very happy. We won the championship. I’m still the top scorer and the best player. So it’s great, said Mbappe, who is also PSG’s all-time leading scorer.

It’s true that at the end of the season when we won the title, that was my personal goal and I achieved it.

I will go down in history and I’m happy. But I still have next year to beat Jean-Pierre Papin.

Three other players have won the Ligue 1 Golden Boot five times, but Papin was the first player to win it five times in a row between 1987 and 1992, when he was with Olympique Marseille.

After vowing to honor his contract with PSG, Mbappe’s words were another clear indication that he would remain with the team amid rumors of interest from Real Madrid, a club that had courted him in the past but failed to get the French forward.

Mbappe signed a contract with PSG until 2025 last year, but Sky Sports reported that we are only talking about a two-year deal with an option for a third year for the player – meaning that Mbappe will enter the final year of his contract next season.
