Macron, who was being questioned by a young PSG fan on the sidelines of the VivaTech exhibition in Paris, said he had “no scoop” on the future of Mbappe.

Mbappe and his entourage spoke out the day after he sent a letter to the club confirming he would not take up an option to remain at the French champions until 2025.

Should Macron talk with Mbappe, it would not be the first time the pair have brought up his future in the Paris club.
