The French international is set to enter the final year of his contract this summer
‘He still has a year of his contract, so it is not the end,’ he told Canal+, reported by Mundo Deportivo.
‘The moment to make a decision will come, but today it is not important.
‘We are optimistic and we have no reason not to be, because of what we have done.’
There were worrying signs for PSG fans, however, after Mbappe limped off the pitch with a leg injury during their 1-3 victory over Metz.

PSG’s sporting director also insisted that Mauricio Pochettino and his side are purely focused on a strong end to the season.
They are currently leading the Ligue 1 title race but could lose their advantage if Lille win their game in hand.
Pochettino also has on eye set on the Champions League, with PSG set for a semi-final tie with Manchester City and they are also in the final four of the French Cup.
