Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier said he does not have to try to convince Kylian Mbappe to stay at the French club.
PSG’s exit from the UEFA Champions League at the round of 16 stage as European success once again eluded the French heavyweights has raised questions regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future at the club.
The France international snubbed a move to Real Madrid on a free transfer in 2022 and instead extended his stay at Paris Saint-Germain by signing a new contract. But, Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move away from PSG several times even after putting pen to paper on a new contract in 2022.
Speaking after Paris Saint-Germain’s elimination from the Champions League, Kylian Mbappe refused to give a clear answer on his future beyond the end of the current campaign.
