Following his emphatic hat-trick against FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, Kylian Mbappe made comments about his future amid heavy links with Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old scored three times in the Paris Saint-Germain's 4-1 win at the Camp Nou in what many believe was his best performance in the French giants' jersey.

Mbappe opened his account five minutes after Messi broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the first half, before adding a second in the 65th minute and a third five minutes before the end of the match.  

Speaking after the clash, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner was thrilled with the way he and his colleagues performed, but insisted he would not make a decision over his future based on one match.

"We are very happy," Mbappe told RMC Sport

"It was a very important match for us. We wanted to come here and win, and we did it in style.

"Tonight, it is magnificent but we have not won anything yet. I am happy. I always want to give the best of myself. I have not always had that success. But never in my life will I hide.

"Today, my hard work is paying off... We are feeling better and better physically (after their Covid-19 outbreak).

"It would be stupid to decide my future on a single match. The truth is that it is about reflecting for the long term. I have always said that I am happy here. This sort of match makes me even happier. The PSG shirt is one that I hold dear to my heart."
