GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS,
Kylian Mbappe is in urgent transfer talks with Paris Saint-Germain over his future following Sunday’s Ligue 1 title flop.
He told Canal Plus: “Everyone knows how profoundly attached I am to the club.
“I have always been very thankful towards the president and my different coaches.
“What I want is to win, to feel like I am somewhere where I can win, where there is a solid project around me.
“The footballing project is essential. I want to feel like I am part of a team that is going to do something.
“Then, it’s up to us to show what we can do. We are talking with the club, we will see what happens.”
Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel is hopeful Edouard Mendy will be fit for the Champions League final after a ‘huge improvement’ in his rib injury.
The goalkeeper, 29, was taken off at half-time after crashing against the post attempting to save Bertrand Traore’s opener in the 2-1 loss to Aston Villa.
He said: “For Edu, the update is that we still have hope that he joins training on Wednesday and he joins the group.
“We had a huge improvement in the management of the pain.
“We need a further update on Wednesday, but we hope to have him back in training on Wednesday.
“Edu will play if he is fit and if he is not fit on Wednesday we will try on Thursday.
“And we will try on Friday and take the responsibility for this decision.”
And finally, Gareth Southgate has shelved plans to name his final Euros squad today.
The England boss will instead reveal a provisional group at lunchtime before finalising his 26-man tournament picks next Tuesday.
Southgate delayed his final choices because of the number of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United players involved in the two European club finals.
It will also give Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson extra time to work on his fitness after his long lay-off following groin surgery.
But his Reds team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold is still sweating over his place.
The 22-year-old was not selected for the three World Cup qualifiers in March due to his loss of form.
Despite an improved end to the season, he has struggled to convince Southgate despite his offensive strengths.
Now the Three Lions boss must make big decisions on his right-backs with Chelsea’s Reece James also at risk.
West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone is set to replace injured Burnley star Nick Pope.
The Dortmund duo of Jude Bellingham and Jadon Sancho are likely to be included.
