Mauricio Pochettino, Paris St Germain’s manager has given a little hopeful information as regards Mbappé’s future in the Club.

Pochettino said this with high hopes that the club is on the situation presently.

Recall that Real Madrid has in the just ended transfer window, submitted deals for Mbappé’s move over to Madrid following Messi’s contract with the ligue 1 top club. Although it wasn’t accepted on the grounds that his contract is still running.

“Mbappe is fine, he’s a calm boy with a lot of personality and a very sociable character, he is clear about things and loves football, he’s very mature for 22-years-old,” Pochettino said in an interview with COPE and Radio MARCA.

“Kylian will make the decision he has to make and the club will do everything possible to keep him, because we’re taking about one of the best players in the world at 22.

“I’m left with the fact that the situation is open and in the future anything can happen, the position of a few months ago may change in the future, PSG as a club certainly have the ambition and ability to persuade him and offer him things so that he can stay and be happy, the possibilities that he could change his mind are there.”

He also offered some insight on Real Madrid’s former captain who joined PSG too during the transfer window and is yet to play his debut match due to injuries.

“Unfortunately, Ramos hasn’t started training with the group yet, but he is close,” Pochettino said.

“We’re happy with his progression, he’s a great champion and someone who isn’t going to doubt his qualities and footballing talent, he’s not having a good time right now but he is strong.”he concluded.
