Pochettino vows to ‘seduce’ Mbappe into staying at PSG and reject Madrid bid


MAURICIO POCHETTINO plans to do everything in his power to keep Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-German next summer.

The 22-year-old’s been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid when his contract ends in June 2022, but Pochettino won’t let him leave without putting up a fight.

The PSG boss is aware that Mbappe is one of football’s hottest talents and is adamant the Ligue 1 side can sway the French youngster to stay put.

He told Marca: “Kylian will make the decision he has to make, and the club will do everything possible to keep Kylian.

“Because we are talking from one of the best players in the world, 22 years old and with great potential.

“Who can think that PSG does not want him to continue here for many more years? 

“The club will try to convince and seduce him to continue here.”

And in order to sway Mbappe to reject Madrid’s advances, PSG will seduce him with offers they hope he won’t be able to resist, Pochettino revealed.

Even though Mbappe has previously expressed his desire to join Los Blancos, Pochettino reckons anything is possible in football, including getting the striker to stay in Paris.

The Argentine added: “PSG as a club has the hope and the ability to seduce him and to offer him things so that he can stay and be happy.

“He has a contract until June 30, 2022, and the possibilities that he can change his mind are there.”

Pochettino’s stance on Mbappe was also echoed by PSG’s sporting director Leonardo earlier this week.

Leonardo made it clear that Mbappe was one of the club’s jewels and that they’ve never envisioned a future without him.

But in spite of PSG’s hierarchy’s confidence that Mbappe will stay put, Madrid think otherwise and claim he could even join them in January.

And if they do miss out on him in the New Year, the La Liga outfit reckon they’ll be able to snag Mbappe on a free transfer when the season’s over.
