Kylian Mbappe excited by 'extraordinary' chance to play with Neymar at PSG


The 18-year old joined from Monaco on a season-long loan deal that will be made permanent for €180 million plus bonuses next summer if PSG avoid relegation this season.

"It was a very tough deal", Vasilyev said in an interview with Tass news agency. I was a football fan, a kid who loved football and when you are a kid from Paris there are only two stadiums - the Stade de France or the Parc de Princes - and that is what makes Paris so special.

"I want to do even better than last season", he said, when was presented to the media on Wednesday.

The move will see Mbappe link up with Neymar following the Brazil star's world-record transfer from Barcelona and that is something the France global is relishing. "It is extraordinary to play with him".

"He is an additional advantage", said Mbappe. "It's hard to replace him", Gaizka Mendieta said after a Manchester United Legends and Barcelona Legends played out a 2-2 draw in the second of their two charity matches at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"For me, the price is what it is, it's not going to change my way of playing and it's not something that's going to worry me", he said.

"In May, I was of the opinion I'd stay with Monaco", he explained.

Mbappe, regarded as one of the sport's rising stars, scored 21 goals last season to help Monaco win the Ligue 1 title. "In the end, however, I changed my mind and I thought it would have been important to remain in my country and return in the city I have been growing in". "We paid everything in a transparent way".

Current champions Real Madrid are just 4/1 (add to your betslip) to land the prize for a historic third time - while Neymar's PSG are 11/2 (add to your betslip) with Sun Bets.

"We have nothing to hide".
