Kylian Mbappe is reportedly ‘concerned’ over new teammate Lionel Messi, after the Argentine superstar joined Paris Saint-Germain.

However, there are already concerns that the three players will only have one year together in Paris, with Mbappe’s deal at the club expiring next summer.

According to Gazzeta Dello Sport, Messi’s signing has ‘bothered’ the French superstar, who fears he may be put in the ‘shadow’ of his two illustrious teammates.

Mbappe has been in the French capital since 2017 after joining the club on a one-year loan deal which turned permanent the following season for a massive £163m.

His contract ends next summer and it is said that Mbappe is expected to announce his decision over his future to the club on Monday.

The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with Real Madrid, while other top European clubs could be interested if he is available on a free.  

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi dismissed claims that Mbappe could leave the club this summer.

Speaking at Messi’s first press conference at the club, Al-Khelaifi touched on Mbappe’s situation.

He said: ‘Everyone knows the future of Mbappe. He is a PSG player.

‘Kylian is very competitive, he wants to win, he has publicly said that he does not want to leave the team and there are no doubts or excuses of any other kind. Mbappe stays’. 

Mbappe did take to social media on Thursday though to welcome Messi to the club.

He shared pictures of him hugging the Barcelona legend with the caption: ‘Welcome to Paris, Leo.’ 

Messi, who signed a two-year contract with Paris St-Germain worth a staggering £1million per week after leaving Barcelona, said he was excited about playing with Mbappe and Neymar – calling them ‘the best players’ during his press conference.

‘It feels great to play with them to play everyday with these great players, and the other players who are here,’ he told the world’s media. ‘I can’t wait to train with them. It’s great to do it everyday.’
