Nasser Al-Khelaïfi: 'A great talent'
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi (Paris Saint-Germain Chairman and CEO)
"It's a great day for us. I'm very pleased to present our new recruit Kylian Mbappé. This is a magnificent moment for the club, for the league and for all French clubs. Kylian is just 18, but he is already known around the world. For me, it was impossible for him to leave France. He's a great talent and an incredibly promising prospect for French football and Paris Saint-Germain. He's a great player. Paris is his city and Paris Saint-Germain is his boyhood club. (Speaking to Kylian Mbappé) Welcome home - to Paris, to Paris Saint-Germain and the Parc des Princes. Everyone has been waiting for this moment: our fans, the media, all the French clubs and the league. I'm sure that we'll write a beautiful chapter in the history of Paris Saint-Germain together, and that you will stay with us for a long time - as I said to your family - because we have big plans for you and for the club."
Kylian Mbappé (Paris Saint-Germain forward)
"Joining Paris Saint-Germain is a great pleasure for me. The club is extremely ambitious: it's already one of the best clubs in the world but wants to become the very best. The club doesn't stop at simply wanting something; it has put everything into place to create a project that is far beyond solid. That's what made up my mind to sign here. It was important for me to stay in France, having played just six months at the highest level. It was important to return home, to the city where I was born and grew up. I think that, with a lot of work, we can reach our objective, which is to win a lot of trophies and make the dream of winning the Champions League a reality."
