PSG laugh in the face of Financial Fair Play by confirming the loan-to-buy signing of Kylian Mbappe

The Ligue 1 giants have signed the 18-year-old wonderkid on a season-long loan before a permanent move next summer

Yep, they’ve done it again.

Not content with signing Neymar for a casual £198million, PSG have confirmed the addition of Kylian Mbappe to their star-studded squad.

Waving goodbye to Monaco like…

The 18-year-old wonderkid joins the Ligue 1 giants on a season-long loan and will sign for them on a permanent basis next summer for £166million.

The great Monaco exodus has reached a new peak as Mbappe joins Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy, Tiemoue Bakayoko and others on the recently departed list.

PSG’s premier attacking options now include Neymar, Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani — which should be enough to make Ligue 1’s defenders wake up screaming in the middle of the night.

The club have got around Financial Fair Play rules with the loan-then-buy agreement.

Next summer Mbappe will become the second most expensive player of all time behind new team-mate, Neymar.

The teenage Frenchman scored 26 goals in all competitions last season including six in nine Champions League fixtures.

Trying to spot Financial Fair Play rules

Real Madrid, Arsenal and Man City had all been strongly linked with Mbappe but PSG’s plan for global domination has won out.

Unai Emery’s men are overwhelming favourites to win Ligue 1 now that their main rivals have been severely weakened.

The question now is, when, if ever, will PSG stop spending?
