Mbappe strikes as PSG beat 10-man Metz

After months of speculation regarding his future, Kylian Mbappe secured a deadline day move to PSG on an initial one-year loan deal with the Parisians having to option to buy the Frenchman next season for £166m.

Paris: French teenage football sensation Kylian Mbappe found the target in his debut for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) as the Ligue 1 leaders eased past Metz 5-1 to register five wins from five matches.

While Barca could pay almost €150m for Dembele in total, that fee is set to be eclipsed by the €180m PSG are set to pay Monaco for Mbappe next summer.

Much was made of the former Rennes' standout's decision to skip training with Borussia Dortmund to force his club's hand, with Mbappe today revealing that his fellow countryman came to him for advice on the decision.

At the team hotel, the 18-year-old was made to stand in front of his new teammates to perform his initiation song. He also inadvertently delivered an assist for the Uruguay striker in the 75th minute after Metz defenders failed to clear a cross. The long-serving Arsenal manager even went as far to compare Mbappe to one of the game's greatest ever players. "I played 4 seasons in Europe and I feel ready to take the challenge". "So, individually, my goal is to score a lot of goals and help Neymar'".

If not, then a decision may not come until December, leaving just over a year to work out a complex trade deal. He does state any solution can't affect Ireland's position in the single market and customs union.

'Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is a great coach.

"I do not see him coming, he tackles me and it can be more risky". If you ask me now I'd say I prefer center forward. We have to maintain the control of financial management of the clubs.

"We have nothing to hide", PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said Wednesday. "I told him not to think twice about going there because it was a great opportunity for him", Mbappe told Foot Mercato.

The tenor of the evening changed emphatically, and for good, when Assou-Ekotto saw red and, with replays suggesting he won the ball, Mbappe gave a measured account of the incident.
