Thierry Henry has called on Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe to stay until the end of the season, amid speculation that he may depart in January.
Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for over two years and has twice turned down Los Blancos’ interest to stay at his hometown club.
However, it has been reported that he could depart Paris in January, particularly if Madrid is willing to pay a premium to get his services.
In an interview with CBS Sports, Henry urged the star winger to stay in Paris until next summer.
“If I’m Kylian Mbappe, I’m not going. You want to finish what you started. Why would you want to leave? You still have to win the league,” he said.
“He loves PSG, you have to understand that. He loves his club, he’s from there… I want him to stay until the end.”
With Mbappe’s contract set to expire in June, it appears he could be wearing a Madrid shirt next season.
Even though he has the opportunity to trigger an extension clause in the contract, he has reportedly informed his team this summer that he does not intend to accept it.
