Carlo Ancelotti says he does not care if Real Madrid signs Kylian Mbappe before the transfer window closes.
The striker’s future at Paris Saint-Germain remains uncertain as he has entered the last year of his contract and has stayed quiet on his intention to sign an extension.
Madrid has long been linked with the France international and is said to be the favorites to sign him should he leave PSG.
Ancelotti says he does not know if the Spanish giants will land the 22-year-old and are satisfied with his current selection.
“I don’t know if he will arrive,” he said at a press conference when asked about his side’s interest in Mbappe.
“I don’t care what will happen. I have a very good and very strong squad. They give me a lot of happiness. I am focused on that.
“Let’s wait these 10 days and now I am focused on the team that I have.”
He added: “This squad, as it is, can compete for any trophy. We have very big stars here. I’m not going to name all of them, but we have a lot of top players. This squad is full of stars.
“We have to work together. The star, if he can compete for the others, wins titles.”
Mbappe is off to a strong start for PSG this season. He has started all three of their Ligue 1 games so far and netted his first goal as they beat Brest 4-2 on Friday, adding to the two assists he registered in the previous matches.
Before the game, coach Mauricio Pochettino was asked about the attacker’s future and said he expects him to stay put.
“He’s working really hard to be ready this season and I see him staying with us this season,” he said.
