    Kathmandu: Mauricio Pochettino has revealed how Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has reacted to fresh speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

    Mbappe, who has one year left on his current contract at PSG, is reportedly keen on a move to Madrid this summer.

    The French giants have completed the signings of Lionel Messi, Gianluigi Donnarrumma, Achraf Hakimi, Gini WIjnaldum and Sergio Ramos already this summer.

    But despite the star-studded names that have come into the club, it is believed that Mbappe still wants to leave to join the 13-time Champions League winners.

    Amid fresh speculation that a deal could be done this summer, Pochettino has said he believes Mbappe will stay at the club for at least one more season.

    ‘Mbappe is working very well. I see him staying with us this season,’ he said.

    There are many rumours [about a move to Real Madrid] but he’s calm. We want him to stay here. He has one more year on his contract with us. Even if he does not renew, he is still a PSG player.’

    The 22-year-old could be part of a front three of himself, Neymar and Messi this season as the French club aim to win both the French domestic league and Champions League trophies this season.

    Fellow PSG forward Angel Di Maria also believes that Mbappe will remain at the club this summer.
