LIGUE 1 - Mbappe not ruling out PSG stay
Kylian Mbappe fell short of saying he would leave Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires at the end of the season but Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said he was optimistic the France striker would join the Spanish giants.
The 22-year-old told the Ligue 1 club he wanted to join Real Madrid during the close season, only for PSG to turn down the Spanish club's offers.
Asked if he was going to leave next summer, Mbappe told French sports daily L'Equipe: "I’ve been in football long enough now to know that yesterday's truth is not necessarily today's, nor tomorrow's.
"If I was told that Messi was going to play at PSG, I wouldn't have believed it, so you never know what's going to happen."
Perez, however, told Spanish paper El Debate on Monday that his club would have news on Mbappe in January.
"Hopefully everything can be sorted on the first of January," he said.
