Sun 18 April 2021 | 17:07

The PSG boss is hoping that the France international will sign a renewal with the French champions.

Paris Saint-Germain

manager

Mauricio Pochettino

is optimistic that

Kylian Mbappe

will renew his contract.

The 22-year-old’s deal will expire in 2022 and he may leave PSG in the summer transfer window if he doesn’t sign a new one.

Real Madrid

are eyeing the France international, who scored a brace for his side and sealed their 3-2 victory over

Saint-Etienne

on Sunday.

Pochettino told 

Canal+

:

“I am an optimist, and I hope that the best players at the club, in this case Kylian, will stay here

.”

Pochettino also talked about his side’s victory on Sunday that was secured at the end of the match.

It's a victory, we'll see at the end if it's a victory for the title, but it's three very important points, we looked for the win until the end,”

Pochettino said.

“The team has mental strength, a lot of quality and not just athletically. The circumstances are what they are, it's not easy, but these three points will give us energy.”

Speaking to Canal+, he said:

“We got into the problems on our own. When we lead 2-1, we have to keep the lead, but we wanted to win, because Ligue 1 is a primary objective for us and we want to write ourselves into the history of the club. We want to win and we are competitors.

“People think it's easy to win, it isn't. This season there is a tough race for the title. We must continue to give our all. We win the matches, that's the most important.”
