Paris Saint-Germain are confident star players Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will stay at the club after they reached the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday.

Mauricio Pochettino's men held their nerve in a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich, progressing to a last-four clash against either Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund on the away-goals rule following a 3-2 win in Germany in the first leg.

I think that next year Neymar will be at Paris Saint-Germain and he will stay here for a long time.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's 40th-minute goal gave the holders hope but PSG were able to avenge their defeat to Hansi Flick's side in last season's final.

Neymar's contract at the Parc des Princes is set to expire in June 2022, but he and Mbappe have been in extension discussions with the club's sporting director Leonardo and president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is confident there will not be any issues.

Neymar has scored six goals in the Champions League while Mbappe has chipped in with eight as they eye a place in next month's final in Istanbul

Al-Khelaifi said: "I think that next year Neymar will be at Paris Saint-Germain and he will stay here for a long time.

"Him and Mbappe have no reason to leave. It's been a fantastic night for us and we could have scored three or four goals.

"It's something wonderful and I'm proud of my players."

Paris Saint-Germain are 11.00 to go one better than last season and win their first Champions League trophy this season, while Manchester City are 1.53 to claim their first triumph.

Chelsea, who booked their place in the semi-finals by beating Porto, are available at 2.50.
