PSG president Luis Enrique expects to reach a deal with Kylian Mbappe.

Paris Saint-Germain president Luis Enrique expressed optimism that the club will “find an agreement” with Kylian Mbappe and stated that a deal for Ousmane Dembele was “99%” completed.

Mbappe is not practising with PSG’s first-team squad after stating that he will not extend his contract beyond next summer.

PSG prefers to sell Mbappe rather than let him depart for free when his contract expires.

“I hope the club and the player can reach an agreement,” former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique remarked.

Mbappe was supposed to leave on a free transfer at the end of the 2021-22 season, but instead agreed to a two-year contract extension with the option of another year.

But the 24-year-old has already informed the club that he has no intention of signing to the year-long extension, and is largely expected to join Real Madrid for free in 2024.

Mbappe was left out of PSG’s preseason tour squad in Asia.

He later refused to meet with representatives from Saudi Pro League club Al-Hilal, who made a world record £259 million bid for him.

PSG begin their Ligue 1 championship defense against Lorient on Saturday, and the futures of Mbappe, fellow attacker Neymar, and midfielder Marco Verratti remain uncertain.

“I will not talk about my discussions with Neymar and Verratti,” stated Luis Enrique, the ex-Spain coach who took over for Christophe Galtier this summer.

“It is in the public domain.” I’d like you to pay attention to what I’m doing. My decisions will demonstrate my point of view.”

Meanwhile, France striker Ousmane Dembele is on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona.

“Dembele is not yet legally a PSG player.” But 99%,” Luis Enrique added. “There is still one paragraph left in the contract.”
