Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe will leave the French giants this summer. The 23-year-old’s future has been the subject of much speculation with his contract at the Parc des Princes set to expire in June.
Mbappe has been linked with a number of European football’s elite clubs including Real, Chelsea and Liverpool. However, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino insisted that he and Mbappe would both remain in the French capital after they were confirmed as Ligue 1 champions.
The Argentine was asked about the likelihood of himself and Mbappe staying at the club to which he replied: “100% in both cases, that is how I feel today. That is what I can say to you today. I can’t say anything else. That is how I feel right now.

“This is football, and we never know what might happen. But I have to answer the question based on how I feel today. And this is what I have done.”
Mbappe has enjoyed another sensational season for PSG; scoring 33 goals in 42 appearances to help his side win their fourth title in the last five seasons. The French forward is one of the most sought after players in world football, and last summer Real had a reported bid of €200 million (£167m) to secure his services turned down by the Qatari backed Ligue 1 side.
However the France star is widely expected to join Los Blancos on a free transfer when his current deal expires. And Ancelotti didn’t concur with Pochettino’s assessment of his star striker’s future.
“Pochettino said Mbappe will 100% stay? Well, sometimes coaches don’t tell the truth,” he said.
