The celebrations have well and truly started after AS Monaco sealed the Ligue 1 title with a 2-0 win over St Etienne at Stade Louis II on Wednesday night.
He insisted that Monaco want Mbappe to continue at the club for one more season to further aid his development and achieve greater results for the Ligue 1 champions.
Given the way in which Paris romped to the title last season, wrapping it up in early March, Monaco's championship triumph is enormously refreshing.
Led by the strike duo of Radamel Falcao and Mbappe, Monaco averaged almost three goals per game this season to end PSG's four-year dominance.
The win lifts Zinedine Zidane's side three points above rivals Barcelona and a draw in their final match against Malaga will be enough to seal the title, regardless of how well Barca do at home to Eibar.

"After the victory in Gambardella (a French youth cup competition), my mother told me: "It's all very well, but it's with the kids".
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Monaco turned down the offer for the French worldwide who has scored 26 times in all competitions, claiming the proposed fee was too low. At least until Real Madrid go and sign him like pretty much everyone expects.
The second half lacked intensity as Saint-Etienne seemed resigned to its fate, despite a good effort from Veretout that was intercepted by Monaco defender Kamil Glik near the hour mark.
But he made amends deep into stoppage time as Thomas Lemar sprang a counter-attack that left Germain with the simplest of tap-ins to complete a memorable evening.
