Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo says that he is becoming 'irritated' by Zinedine Zidane's public admiration of Kylian Mbappe.

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has criticised Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane for comments made about Kylian Mbappe.

The France international has frequently been linked with a future move to the Bernabeu - something which Zidane has talked up by suggesting that a switch to Los Blancos is the 20-year-old's "dream".

However, Leonardo has acknowledged that he has been left 'irritated' by Zidane, who has never been shy of speaking about his compatriot.

On Wednesday night, Leonardo told reporters: "Honestly, it's a bit irritating, it's annoying. It's not the first time this has happened. Kylian is a very important player for us. Now is not the time to destabilise him.

"Mbappe is a player who has two and a half years left on his contract with us, so to talk about what he wants, his 'dream', every time, if we can just stop this, pause this talk."

Liverpool are also said to be keen on signing Mbappe next summer.
