“We leave the rumours aside. All great players are welcome at PSG,” Pochettino told a press conference.

“Father Christmas has been generous with me, I take this opportunity to thank President Nasser [Al-Khelaifi] and [sporting director] Leonardo for the trust and to be in this great club and back in this house.

“It’s one of the biggest clubs, if not the biggest in the world, so it’s normal that there are rumours. We have just arrived, so we leave them aside.”
