“There are many deadlines before this summer. It would be a lack of respect for the club to think about that. At the end of the season, we will meet with the club, my agent, my relatives, to make a decision. An offer from PSG? It will be studied like all the other possibilities. I do not close any door, “said the 24-year-old French international hopeful in an interview with The Team on Saturday.
