Paris Saint-Germain have announced the signing of Monaco teenager Kylian Mbappe on a season-long loan, with an option to buy next summer.

"Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce the immediate arrival of Kylian Mbappe," the club wrote on its website.

"The loan agreement also includes an option to buy which, when exercised, will bind the player to Paris Saint-Germain until June 30, 2022."

According to media reports, the overall transfer fee could rise to 180 million euros including add-ons, which would make Mbappe, 18, the second most valuable player ever behind his new team-mate Neymar.

Paris Saint-Germain have announced the signing of Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe on a season-long loan with an option to buy next summer.

Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona were all interested in the teenager this summer but PSG have won the race for his signature.

Mbappe is expected to complete a £162 million switch on a permanent deal next summer in what has been viewed as a controversial ploy to navigate the Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

“It is with great joy and pride that I join the Paris Saint-Germain,” Mbappe told the club’s website.

“For any young person from the Paris region, it is often a dream to wear the red and blue jersey and to taste the unique atmosphere of the Parc des Princes.

“I was seduced by the project of the club, it is one of the most ambitious in Europe. Along with my new teammates, I intend to continue my progression today while helping the team to achieve the very big objectives it has set itself. ”

The 18-year-old scored 26 goals in 44 matches for Monaco last season, winning Ligue 1, and is one of the hottest prospects in Europe.

Alexis Sanchez to stay at Arsenal as Thomas Lemar move falls through

Alexis Sanchez is almost certain to stay at Arsenal despite suggestions earlier in the week and even on Thursday, transfer deadline day, that the Chilean forward would be granted his wish to leave the club.

Arsenal were only willing to sell Sanchez, who was the subject of two bids from Manchester City, if they were able to find a replacement, with Monaco’s Thomas Lemar the first preference.

The Gunners were ready to meet Monaco’s €100 million asking price, with a bid of that value said to have been accepted by the French club.

However, with the bid coming so late on deadline day, it’s likely that Arsenal don’t have the time to agree terms with Lemar in order to complete the transfer.

The player is in France’s squad for the national team’s game against Holland later on Thursday, making negotiating a contract and completing a medical difficult.

Lemar reportedly would prefer a move to Liverpool in any case.

With the Lemar transfer looking nearly impossible, Sanchez will not be allowed to leave this summer.
