“I have a contract with PSG. I am happy with my team-mates and I only think about my story here,” he told reporters, via Sport .

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was also insistent that his star man would not be leaving in the summer, claiming that the 26-year-old would ‘100 per cent’ still be with the French side next season
