"

I will be clear, Mbappe is going to stay in Paris,"

told 

L'Equipe

"We will never sell him and he will never leave on a free (transfer). Mbappe has everything he needs in Paris.

"Where can he go? What club, in terms of ambition, can compete with PSG today? All I can say is that things are going well and I hope we can reach an agreement (on a new contract).

"This is Paris, this is his country. He has a mission, not only to play football, but to promote Ligue 1, his country and his capital."

"Kylian has been clear on this point,"

he said.

"He is here, he knows why he is here, he is with the France national team.

"He will have a decision to make and he will take it whenever he wants.

"For the moment, he is still under contract with PSG and he is supposed to be there for next season.

"After that, I do not know if he is in total control [of his future] but, in any case, he has felt peace and serenity with us and is focused on where we are together with the France team."
