Why Paris Saint-Germain was the only team for Kylian Mbappe

Posted September 11, 2017

Though Mbappe has only joined PSG from Monaco on loan for the season, the deal contains an automatic purchase option that will be activated at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

Edinson Cavani was full of praise for Kylian Mbappe who scored on his debut for Paris St-Germain in their 5-1 win at Metz on Friday night.

Mbappe was also subject to heavy transfer speculation over the summer, eventually moving to PSG himself in a freaky loan move from Monaco that will eventually lead to a €180m permanent switch next summer.

Life at PSG has gotten off to the flawless start for Kylian Mbappe, with the forward scoring on his debut in a 5-1 win away to Metz on Friday night.

Mbappe was in the thick of the action, combined well with his new attacking partners and touched a lot of balls.

The turning point arrived in the 56th minute, when Metz defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto was shown a red card for his tough foul on Mbappe, who scored three minutes later.

Both players are among the biggest prospects in world football right now and their futures dominated headlines for much of the summer, but Mbappe thinks his friend Dembele could really elevate his game alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in Barcelona, according to Marca.

"When I met with some coaches, I told them, and they can confirm, that my priority is Monaco. I think all the players are happy". "Therefore, individually at least, my goal is to score many goals and help Neymar". The domestic competition is undoubtedly their's to lose but how well will they fare in Champions League remains to be seen.

"I do not see him coming, he tackles me and it can be more unsafe". For me he is in the 10 per cent.

Kylian Mbappe, Neymar. Cavani celebrate together.

The fact that it was the same club who later secured the signature of the highly sought after young French striker just highlights how much spending power the French club has and how Arsenal can not compete with them on a financial basis no matter how well we do commercially.

"I didn't say no to him (Guardiola), but I said no to Manchester City".
