Kylian Mbappe has not asked to leave Paris Saint-Germain and will be involved in Sunday’s trip to Reims, head coach Mauricio Pochettino said.
Mbappe has been heavily linked with a blockbuster move to Real Madrid during this transfer window.
According to widespread reports, Madrid have offered € 170million plus € 10million in additions to sign the 22-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with PSG.
Mbappe, who has scored 133 times in 174 games for the French giants, trained on Saturday ahead of the showdown with Reims.
Pochettino also revealed that Lionel Messi and Neymar would play a role at the Stade Auguste-Delaune.
“They will definitely all be in the squad so we have to see if they are in the start -11 tomorrow,” the head coach said.
“Kylian Mbappe is working very hard and preparing for tomorrow’s match.
“In terms of communication with our president and sporting director, they have made clear what the club’s position is in this regard.”
“Kylian is doing very well and preparing for tomorrow’s match.”
