Official: PSG sign Mbappe

Paris Saint-Germain have officially announced the transfer of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

The most expected transfer of the summer has been finalised. PSG have signed Kylian Mbappe on a season-long loan with an option-to-buy that would tie the player to Paris until 2022. The move of the 18-year-old has been confirmed by both clubs.

The striker, currently with the France national team, said to the official website of the Parisians:“It is with great joy and pride that I join the Paris Saint-Germain. For any young person from the Paris region, it is often a dream to wear the red and blue jersey and to taste the unique atmosphere of the Parc des Princes.”

“I was seduced by the project of the club, it is one of the most ambitious in Europe. Along with my new teammates, I intend to continue my progression today while helping the team to achieve the very big objectives it has set itself”, Mbappe added.

It remains to be seen how PSG will deal with the FFP and how they will explain to UEFA the deal that has brought Mbappe to Paris, after having already spent €222m for Neymar.
