Mauricio Pochettino has promised to’seduce’ Kylian Mbappe into staying at Paris Saint-Germain and rejecting a transfer bid from Real Madrid.
MAURICIO POCHETTINO intends to use all of his resources to keep Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-German next summer.
When his contract expires in June 2022, the 22-year-old has been extensively linked with a move to Real Madrid, but Pochettino will not allow him leave without a fight.
PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is well aware that Mbappe is one of the game’s brightest prospects, and he is certain that the Ligue 1 club can persuade the French teenager to stay put.
He said to Marca: “Kylian will make his decision, and the club will do all in its power to keep him.
“We’re talking about one of the top players in the world, a 22-year-old with a lot of promise.
“Who can believe PSG doesn’t want him to stay here for another few years?”
The club will strive to persuade and lure him to stay.”
Pochettino revealed that in order to persuade Mbappe to reject Madrid’s efforts, PSG will entice him with incentives he won’t be able to refuse.
Despite the fact that Mbappe has shown an interest in joining Los Blancos, Pochettino believes that anything is possible in football, including convincing the striker to stay in Paris.

The Argentine went on to say: “PSG as a club has the opportunity and capability to charm him and entice him to stay and be happy.
“He’s under contract until June 30, 2022, and there’s a chance he’ll change his mind.”
Pochettino’s view on Mbappe was repeated earlier this week by PSG’s sporting director Leonardo.
Mbappe is one of the club’s treasures, according to Leonardo, and the club has never imagined a future without him.
Despite PSG’s belief that Mbappe will stay put, Madrid believes otherwise, claiming that he could even join them in January.
If they lose out on Mbappe in the New Year, they believe they will be able to sign him on a free transfer at the end of the season.
