"Coming back to Paris was key" claims Mbappe at PSG unveiling
Kylian Mbappé was presented this morning as a new PSG player despite attention over the summer from other interested parties including Real Madrid.
Kylian Mbappe was presented to the media in an event at Parc des Princes this morning in the French capital.
Mpabbe claimed that he initially planned to stay with former club AS Monaco: "My plan was to stay with Monaco at the end of last season, but things changed that helped me make the decision to amend my thinking" admitted the 18 year old who was raised in the Bondy area of the French capital.

Mbappé took time to thank his lawyers who he claimed "went out of their way for a good cause" making reference to the arrangement between both Ligue 1 clubs leading to his loan deal with PSG.
The striker will spend the 2017/18 season on loan in Paris with a later buy-out option for a fee of 180 million euro making Mbappe the most expensive French footballer in the history of the game. He joins recent acquisition Neymar who made the move from Barcelona in August for a fee of 222 million euro.
Last week UEFA confirmed that they will conduct a formal investigation into the Mbappe and Neymar deals as they cite possible infringements in the 'financial fair-play' law with head of European football governing body Alexsander Cerefin claiming that "no-one is above the law".
