PSG chief Mauricio Pochettino ‘has a feeling’ Kylian Mbappe will snub transfer interest and stay with Neymar

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN boss Mauricio Pochettino is confident Kylian Mbappe will stay at the club.

A move to Real Madrid has been on the cards for the Frenchman, but Los Blancos can't afford to pay PSG's £140million asking price.

While Liverpool have also been named a contenders for his signature.

However, Pochettino has revealed he does not think Mbappe will not move away from the Ligue 1 champions.

He told RMC: "I believe that Neymar and Mbappe will stay, I have a feeling, and will stay a long time at PSG.

"And I have no doubts, I am very optimistic. The club is working hard to keep them with us.

"Ney and Kylian are happy. They are having fun here."

Questions about Mbappe's future at PSG have arisen after team-mate Neymar confirmed he would be staying in Paris.

Speaking to TF1, he said: "I am happy today. I am truly happy.

"Things have changed a lot. I can’t exactly explain why.

"But today, I am feeling good. I have adapted. I am more calm and I am more happy. I want to stay at PSG."

When asked whether he believes Mbappe would also remain at the club, he added: "I also want Kylian to stay.

"We want PSG to be a great team. I want to continue to play football and be happy, that is the most important thing.”

PSG suffered their fifth league defeat of the season on Sunday as they were beaten 3-2 by Lorient, a result which saw them slip to third in the table.
