Mbappe understanding of Monaco fans let down by move to PSG

Kylian Mbappe is fit and ready to make his Paris Saint-Germain debut against Metz in Ligue 1 on Friday night, according to his manager Unai Emery. But Paris Saint-Germain was the main option.

Kylian Mbappe has admitted that Arsenal were desperate to sign him this summer, but he turned down the transfer to seal a move to PSG instead.

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 global.

The 18-year-old France worldwide spoke for the first time as a PSG player since his transfer went through last week and revealed his initial intentions to remain with Monaco, as well as explaining his decision to turn down a move away from Ligue 1.

Mbappe, speaking as he was officially unveiled at the Parc des Princes, said it had been vital for him to stay in France despite strong interest from Real Madrid. 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.
