PSG sporting director Leonardo has told the likes of Chelsea neither Kylian Mbappe nor Neymar will be leaving the club this summer.
Mbappe is regarded by many as the man to become the best player on the planet in the next couple of seasons, and has been eyed up with a stunning move to some of the biggest clubs over the past 12 months.
Neymar on the other-hand has been one of the best players on the planet for a while now and has been heavily linked with big transfer moves to the Bridge and Barcelona over the coming transfer window, although the coronavirus may stop a record-breaking deal from happening.
But the likelihood of anyone being able to afford either of the Parisians’ star duo in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic is slim anyway, especially as the Brazilian insists the club want to hold onto both for many years to come.
“There’s nothing that tells us they’ll leave this summer,” Leonardo told Journal du Dimanche.
“They both still have two years left on their contracts and we’re thinking about what we can do next with them. We want to move forward.
“Mbappe is the future of PSG. This is what everyone wants. The ideal scenario would be for him to extend his contract. He’s already among the best five players in the word. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are 32 and 35, Neymar and Mbappe are 28 and 21 and they are with us.
“There’s no need to overthink it. We have to take advantage of having them because they’re something huge. We have to find a solution to continue together.”
