Montpellier stars pledge their futures
Montpellier stars Younes Belhanda and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa insist they both want to stay at the club despite rumours of a summer exit.
The duo's superb displays this season have helped the club to within touching distance of an historic first Ligue 1 title, and they have caught the attention of some of Europe's biggest clubs. Belhanda has been linked to Arsenal and Bayern Munich but is adamant that his future lies with the French outfit. "Right now, I want to stay at the club," said the Ligue 1 Player of the Year. Yanga-Mbiwa, who has earned a maiden call-up to Laurent Blanc's preliminary squad for Euro 2012, has been followed closely by France's big clubs as well as Newcastle, Tottenham and Bayern. While admitting that his future is uncertain, the talented stopper wants to remain at the club. "We have just one match left with Montpellier and after that I'll clear my head and think about the future," he said. "The club is prepared to let me leave; the president said I could. But I want to stay, so we'll see."
