Pochettino opens up about Kylian Mbappe to Chelsea transfer links

Mauricio Pochettino, the head coach of Chelsea, has commented on the club’s rumoured interest in Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe informed Paris Saint-Germain that he would not be extending his contract past 2024, and now the club is preparing to sell him this summer.

90min hears that PSG accepted a world-record £259 million bid from Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal for the forward, but he will require persuasion to leave Europe despite the prospect of a lucrative contract.

Although Mbappe is eventually holding out for a transfer to Real Madrid, other clubs in Europe, like Chelsea, have been strongly connected with him. However, sources have told 90min that this came from middlemen looking for a different buyer on PSG’s behalf. In a news conference held before the Blues’ preseason friendly against Newcastle United, Pochettino, who managed Mbappe at PSG from 2020 to 2022, was questioned about Chelsea’s connections to the 24-year-old.

Pochettino stated, “I think we were at PSG and with Kylian in the past, and I think I need to be cautious that I cannot comment. “There is too much noise in everything you say. They must work with Kylian in Paris to resolve this tricky problem. I have nothing to say on our side.

We are working on our reality, which is distinct, he continued. I have nothing to add other than my support. “I’m hoping they can come up with something that works for all sides. I adore this club since I’ve been a player, a captain, and a coach there. We forged a strong bond with Kylian; perhaps, they can work out an arrangement that benefits all parties.
