Ligue 1: There’s 100% chance – Pochettino makes fresh claim over Mbappe’s future at PSG


Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has claimed there is a “100 per cent” chance that he and Kylian Mbappe will still be with the club next season.

Mbappe’s current contract expires on June 30 and he is yet to agree on fresh terms with the club.

Real Madrid is believed to be pushing hard to sign the France forward on a free transfer.

But Pochettino insists he will remain at Parc des Princes beyond the summer.

The Argentine manager has also rubbished speculation over his own future amid reports PSG are set to sack him after a disappointing 2021/2022 campaign that saw a Ligue 1 title triumph do little to detract from an early Champions League exit.

When asked how likely it is that PSG will keep him on and tie Mbappe down to a new contract, Pochettino told a press conference on Thursday: “100 per cent in both cases.”

The 50-year-old added on why he is so confident that Mbappe will decide to stay put: “It’s my feeling today, what I perceive today. That’s what I can say now.

“Of course, it’s football and you never know what can happen. But when asked what I think today, that’s my answer.”
