Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé has revealed that France teammate Lucas Hernandez has urged him to join him at Bayern München.

"Lucas Hernandez told me that I should come to Munich to play for Bayern," Mbappé told Sport Bild (via Goal.com) and added:

"Bayern is one of the five best clubs in the world. One can only congratulate them on how they manage to keep the quality in the squad every year. They just know what they're doing.

"Now [Jerome] Boateng and [David] Alaba have left, but [Dayot] Upamecano, who is an excellent defender, came in. They have a clear concept that makes them a great club.

"And yes, you are always a favorite for any title. So I'll always have to win against Bayern in the future if I want to win a trophy."

With just one year left on his contract with PSG, the forward was asked about his future in the French capital.

"In football, you never know what's going to happen. But I am currently very happy as it is," he responded.

Mbappé and France lock horns with Germany in their first game of the Euros on 15 June.
