Mbappe Officially Unveiled By PSG, Targets Champions League Title

"I want to do even better than last season", Mbappe said at his media presentation, quoted by FourFourTwo.

"It will be extraordinary to play with him (Neymar), but I came for the project".

"And win right away".

The 18-year-old France worldwide striker, who was on Wednesday unveiled as a PSG player, rebuffed all other interest to return to the French capital.

Mbappe's arrival came after PSG had spent €222m to sign Neymar from Barcelona but said that was not the reason he joined the club.

Mbappe acknowledged that the chance to form a partnership with the Brazilian striker was an incentive, but had not been a deciding factor in the decision to make the move.

'He is an additional advantage.

The teenager's explosive pace, strength and goalscoring ability makes him one of the most exciting young players in Europe, and it was no surprise to see a host of clubs interested in his services this summer.

"It was important for me not to leave France after just six months at the highest level", he said.

Mbappe joined PSG on an initial season-long loan from Monaco weeks after the Ligue 1 club signed Neymar for a world record 222 million euros ($264.80 million).

'Back in May, I was in the frame of mind that I would stay with Monaco. "There were events that have changed my opinion".

Mbappe admitted to Arsenal's interest, telling the Daily Telegraph: " Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is a great coach.

Spanish league president Javier Tebas, who claims that PSG could only avoid breaching UEFA Financial Fair Play rules by relying on inflated sponsorships from Qatar, likened the French team to someone who relieves themselves in a swimming pool.

Al-Khelaifi said: "We respect all of Federation Internationale de Football Association and Uefa's rules".
