Monaco star Kylian Mbappe follows Neymar in moving to PSG in huge deal

31/08/2017

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of striker Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

The 18-year-old will join the club on a season-long loan which includes a "call option" to extend to a four-year permanent contract as of June 2018.

Paris-born Mbappe said: "It is with great joy and pride that I join Paris Saint-Germain.

"For any young person from the Paris region, it is often a dream to wear the red ad blue jersey and experience the atmosphere of the Parc des Princes."

Mbappe's arrival is the fourth major addition to PSG's squad, following the world-record signing of Neymar from Barcelona and the signings of full-backs Dani Alves and Yuri Berchiche.

Speaking of PSG's expensive summer, Mbappe added: "I really wanted to be a part of the club’s project, which is one of the most ambitious in Europe.

"Alongside my new team mates, I intend to continue my progression while helping the team achieve the very big objectives it has set itself."

On the signing, PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: "It is with a lot of emotion and satisfaction that I welcome Kylian MbappГ© to the Paris Saint-Germain family.

"It was essential for French football that we keep and help develop such a great talent in our championship. Among players of his age, he is without doubt the most promising in the world due to his immense technical, physical and mental qualities."
