Kylian Mbappé signs with Paris Saint-Germain!
Originally from Bondy, a suburb of Paris, Kylian Mbappé, at 18 years old, is considered to be the future star of French football. On March 25 in Luxembourg he played his first match for the national side and has since made four appearances for France, with the ambition of participating in his first World Cup next year in Russia. An extremely precocious talent, Kylian Mbappé has already played 60 matches with AS Monaco, scoring 27 goals and making 16 assists since his first team debut on December 2 2015 against SM Caen.
In July 2016, at just 17 years old, he won the UEFA European Championship with the French U19 team, scoring five goals during the competition, a few months before becoming a major player in AS Monaco’s Ligue 1 winning season. The arrival of Kylian Mbappé to Paris Saint-Germain – the team he loves – is testament to the strong ambition of the club and its determination to attract the youngest and most brilliant players in world football.
"It is with great joy and pride that I join Paris Saint-Germain, said Kylian Mbappé after signing his contract. For any young person from the Paris region, it is often a dream to wear the red and blue jersey and experience the unique atmosphere of the Parc des Princes. I really wanted to be a part of the club’s project, which is one of the most ambitious in Europe. Alongside my new teammates, I intend to continue my progression while helping the team achieve the very big objectives it has set itself."
"It is with a lot of emotion and satisfaction that I welcome Kylian Mbappé to the Paris Saint-Germain family, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, President of Paris Saint-Germain. It was essential for French football that we keep and help develop such a great talent in our championship. Among players of his age, he is without doubt the most promising in the world due to his immense technical, physical and mental qualities. Since his emergence at the highest level, he has earned an excellent reputation as a young talent who is very respectful, open, ambitious and already very mature. Under our colors, in the midst of truly great players, Kylian will continue his progression in a way that will also benefit the French national team in the months and years to come. With his arrival, more than ever, our supporters will have plenty to cheer about."
