Kylian Mbappe: I met with Wenger and nearly joined Arsenal

Pele: Neymar right to step out of Lionel Messi's shadow Mbappe understanding of Monaco fans let down by move to PSG
Wallace Pearson | 08 September, 2017, 00:51

PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi said that Mbappe chose the French capital team, despite receiving offers from large European clubs, because Paris was his hometown, and PSG is in his heart.

Mbappé took time to thank his lawyers who he claimed "went out of their way for a good cause" making reference to the arrangement between both Ligue 1 clubs leading to his loan deal with PSG.

That makes the ex-Monaco striker the second most expensive player in the world, behind only Neymar, who moved to the Parc des Princes from Barcelona earlier in August. The transfer money is not in my pocket so it is not up to me to speak about it.

'I believe that we were on the case last year already, he was close to joining us, maybe closer last year than this year because the competition to get him was a bit smaller than it is today, ' Wenger said in his press conference on Thursday. "But some things happened". Of course I had an idea what a great football club was like but I was really impressed by the working culture and the mentality of wanting to be better day-in, day-out.

"For me, it was important to come back to my town. So my objective is obviously to score more than last season", he said.

Pele: Neymar right to step out of Lionel Messi's shadow

KYLIAN MBAPPE has warned Celtic he plans to WIN the Champions League in his first season at PSG. "It is extraordinary to play with him".

Mbappe joined PSG weeks after Neymar was signed to the club and the youngster insisted that he signed the contract not just for the opportunity of playing alongside Neymar.

"It won't change my way of living or thinking", he said.

Mbappe is expected to make his PSG debut on Friday, when Unai Emery's men go to Metz for a Ligue 1 fixture.

Kylian Mbappe has revealed that a brief visit to Chelsea's Cobham training ground as an 11-year-old helped to convince him that he wanted to become a professional footballer.
