The head of the Spanish soccer league was forcefully denounced by Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday after he criticized the financing of the two clubs by their Gulf state owners.

If the young footballer is currently overseas to compete in the knockout stages of the world Cup 2018 with the Seleção, the move has already started. 'I also got to meet some of the first-team players - (Didier) Drogba, (Florent) Malouda - the French-speaking ones and took some pictures with them'. Never have I been afforded such affection, support and strength.

Eventually, the mercurial, Frenchman chose to remain in his home country and signed for Paris Saint-Germain.

"My price is anecdotal - it will not weigh me down". "I have a lot of respect for (Monaco vice president) Vadim Vasilyev, who is a remarkable man. But some things happened".

Conversations with Unai Emery were also important in persuading Mbappe, who had also been linked with Real Madrid and Arsenal over the summer. "So it was up to me and I decided to come here in order to develop".

Those six months were sensational. "We will realise this dream of winning the Champions League". But all that was just a stepping stone. Whether they could've got any other player, it's always going to be difficult.

"He is an additional advantage", he said. "He is a passionate coach and transmits that to us players".

He continued: 'It was a wonderful experience.

Neymar joined the Ligue 1 side in a world-record £200 million deal earlier this summer, much to the surprise of the football world.

PSG reached an agreement with top tier rivals Monaco on August 31 to sign Mbappe on loan for the 2017-2018 season with an option to make the arrangement permanent for 180 million euros ($214 million).
