Kylian Mbappe Officially Joins PSG On Season-Long Deal Worth €35 Million

0

PSG finally put an end to one of the biggest transfer stories of the summer.

The Ligue 1 giants have finalised a move to sign Kylian Mbappe from AS Monaco, so the 18-year-old wonderkid will join one of the most terrifying attacking lines in Europe alongside Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

PSG confirmed the move on their official Twitter account, and there hasn’t been any talk regarding if any Parisien player will head back to Monaco as part of the deal. There were rumours of Lucas Moura possibly heading to Les Monegasques, but nothing has been confirmed so far.

Mbappe had an impressive season with Monaco last season, netting 26 goals and 14 assists in 44 across all competitions in the past campaign. But this season he is yet to score in two games, and has been in the centre of the storm following constant arguments with the coaching staff and his teammates. He was keen to leave, and now he got his wish granted.

The deal will be a one-year loan deal worth €35 million. But PSG will have the chance to sign him on a permanent basis before the start of the 2018-19 campaign if they pay the €180M fee that has been discussed during the entire summer.
