Paris Saint-Germain are confident Kylian Mbappe will extend his contract at the end of the season, according to sporting director Leonardo.
Real Madrid were keen to sign him in the summer transfer window and made an opening bid worth €160 million for him a week before the window closed. PSG rejected that offer and decided against letting the France international leave the Parc des Princes.
Mbappe’s contract expires next summer, though, and there could be doubts over his future at PSG.
Leonardo though is confident he will not move elsewhere. He said: “I don’t see Kylian leaving at the end of this season. Mbappe’s relationship with PSG is deep. I don’t think anyone here sees the future without him”.
The Brazilian also clarified that Mbappe was never going to be allowed to leave in the summer.
He added: “The fact that he’s staying, that was the only thing that could happen. We never thought about doing all this without Kylian. We were not happy with the behaviour of Real Madrid.”
