At the end of the contract, the 23-year-old striker is in talks on an extension and is also in talks with Real Madrid. At present, the coaches of Argentina do not take this into account while preparing their team.

Personally, Mauricio Pochettino would like to see Kylian Mbappe stay at PSG next season. Top scorer and best player this season, the striker led the team thanks to his 33 goals and 22 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions. To confirm his desire to stay in Paris, the Ile-de-France coach even jokes about having him with him at all times. literally.

And the former Southampton and Tottenham coach insisted: “It’s clear, we all agree on that at the club. But these decisions are always between the player, the club and the different parties.”
Imminent reaction to Mbappé?
Free to sign with the club of his choice, Kylian Mbappe generates jealousy and many rumours. Still awaiting a decision, Ile-de-France supporters will still have to wait before knowing where the French international will play. And Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t seem more informative.
“I also understood that the decision would come after receiving the title and at the end of the season, still in L1 the PSG coach guessed before challenging Lens. It’s not just Kylian and the club” Huh. Discussions will begin and decisions will be taken once the objective is achieved. And I believe that’s the best thing for the club and for the players.”
