Speaking to PSG’s Official website. Mbappe said: “I really wanted to be a part of the club’s project, which is one of the most ambitious in Europe,”
“For any young person from the Paris region, it is often a dream to wear the red and blue jersey and experience the unique atmosphere of the Parc des Princes.”
The deal was made to be a loan move because of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules, which could see PSG sanctioned by Europe’s football governing body as they have already acquired the service of Neymar Jr for a world record fee this summer.
“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.” PSG President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, added.
