The Money team; Paris Saint-Germain have pulled off their latest coup in the transfer market by completing the signing of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.
The 18-year-old striker was the subject of intense transfer speculation all summer but has finally joined his dream club, initially on loan but with the club having a compulsory purchase clause in the deal that means he will arrive on a permanent mode next season.
At that time, he is expected to become the world’s second most expensive player behind Neymar Jr, with the deal reported to be as much as €180 million.
Mbappe has, though, been used sparingly at the start of the new season, given the speculation around his future, with a whole host of Europe’s top clubs having been linked with a move at one stage or another.
The 18-year-old forward started the French Super Cup defeat to PSG, and then Monaco’s first Ligue 1 game of the new campaign, but has since been an unused substitute or left out of the squad entirely.
