Pochettino remains unsure over Mbappe future amid Real Madrid links

A World Cup-winning forward has entered the final year of his current deal, but his manager says he will not be treated any differently

Mauricio Pochettino has explained how discussions with Kylian Mbappe over his future will remain private and that he will not be freezing the World Cup winner out of his plans despite his contract situation.

A highly-rated 22-year-old has entered the final 12 months of his current deal at Parc des Princes, with no extension agreed as yet as talk of a big-money move to Real Madrid gathers pace once again.

PSG have some big decisions to make as a prized asset heads towards free agency, but Pochettino remains optimistic when it comes to Mbappe's future and will continue to offer him a prominent role in plans for 2021-22.
