Mbappe was close to signing for Arsenal: Wenger

Pele is hoping Neymar can take his career to the next level after his world record summer move

Rising star Kylian Mbappe tried to explain his big-money move to Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco on Monday after receiving fierce criticism from hardcore Monaco fans. He will spend this campaign on loan with French football club Paris Saint-Germain.

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.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger on Thursday said the club was close to roping in highly rated French footballer Kylian Mbappe past year.

PSG now boast one of the most exciting front-lines in world football, and Mbappe was keen to post an image alongside his new teammate following a busy Tuesday for the France worldwide.

The former Monaco attacker has joined PSG on a season-long loan, with an agreement that his move will be made permanent in the next campaign for a massive fee of €180 million (R2.7 billion). I have a lot of respect for [Monaco vice president] Vadim Vasilyev, who is a remarkable man.

Impressive Pablo Carreno Busta reaches first Grand Slam semi-final

"Through hard work and humility, we will achieve our goals", Mbappe, who could make his full PSG debut away at Metz in Ligue 1 on Friday, said. I already have a team-mate who can win it. "It's extraordinary to play with someone of that level".

"I will speak about it very soon and say everything that happened".

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

"UEFA can do as it wishes, but we have done everything in a transparent way".

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.
