France boss denies telling Mbappe to leave his club at the end of the season.

There have been many reports about

Kylian Mbappe’s

future at

Paris Saint-Germain

, with many suggesting

Real Madrid

as his next destination as his contract with the Ligue 1 giants expires at the end of the season, but France head coach

Didier Deschamps

denies having told the 22-year-old striker to leave Parc des Princes when his contract expires.

"It's bull***t to say that I said [Mbappe] had to leave France,"

he exclaimed.

"I never said that, neither for him nor for anyone else.

"This is not to denigrate Ligue 1. Compared to the requirements of the France team, which is the top international level, the more they will be used to top level matches in their daily life in the championship or the European Cup and the closer they get to the level of requirement.

"This is not the case at Real [Madrid] when they play other teams in LaLiga. This is not the case for Bayern [Munich] in their league. Kylian will choose, it's his choice. It’s not a problem if he stays in Paris."

Deschamps has also talked about his future at France national team, saying that French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet has to decide if they want to continue working with him after his contract expires next December or not.

"I don't know. In all honesty, I don't know. I don't care,"

he said.

"It's my president who decides. The only person and last to decide is the president. He will decide. I don't have to. I have not extended yet, that's how it is.

"The most important contract is the contract of confidence. The situation is like that and I don't have a problem.

"It's a possibility to continue. Coaching is another job. I'm not going to forbid myself something. I am fulfilled as a coach.... I am at the top level with the best players and the best competitions. It has always been a possibility to continue. I do not close any doors."
