Mbappe targets Champions League title with PSG

Mbappe targets Champions League title with PSG

The French global was booed by his old fans while he sat on the bench during Ligue 1 champions Monaco's 6-1 thrashing of Marseille, their last game before Mbappe left for title rivals PSG.

As to what had motivated him to leave the reigning champions, who like PSG have won their first four games of the season, he added: "For me it was the project that was going to allow me to develop, to learn while winning".

An initial loan deal has taken him to Parc des Princes, with PSG committing to paying a big-money sum in 2018 as they seek to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.

"We're very confident in our position, in our recruitment", Al Khelaifi said.

Although the duration of his absence is not yet known, he will certainly miss Friday night's Week 5 Ligue 1 Conforama clash away to FC Metz.

Manager Arsene Wenger has held a long-term interest in signing Kylian Mbappe.

When PSG purchased Neymar from Barcelona for a fee of £197m the football world was sent into shock.

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

Mourinho believed that if his club had waited to land their top targets, they would have paid significantly increased fees as a result.

'The coach has been very clear with me about how he wants to use me. We thought that something could happen that could change the market forever. Matic would have been £60m or £70m. "I didn't manage the transfer. People look to the £200 million figure now". "I think that this deal turned out to be the most successful in the world of football".
