Monaco thrash Marseille in game overshadowed by Mbappe transfer talk

The 18-year-old French global striker, one of the stars of last season's run to the title, is on the brink of completing a much talked about move to PSG that would end a summer-long transfer saga.

They have already signed Neymar for a world record £200m this summer.

The 18-year-old is set to complete an original loan move to the French capital, before joining the club permanently for a huge fee following the end of this season.

PSG are insisting on a year-long loan, instead of a direct transfer, to avoid UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules.

PSG and Manchester City have been sanctioned in the past for bteaking FFP rules which were introduced in 2010 to stop European clubs from spending more much more than they earn.

"He is a Monaco player".

Lucas Moura has been continually linked United in the past and Jose Mourinho is still in the market for a player who can operate on the wing.

Kylian Mbappe's pending arrival will give Paris Saint-Germain an attack that is the envy of world football according to Adrien Rabiot.

He's expected to arrive in Paris to undergo a medical today.

Mbappe blitzed French football last season, catching the eye of all of Europe's biggest clubs. In the 4-3-3 that Emery favours, Mbappe might effectively occupy the right side of the front trio, with Neymar on the left. The French club chose to accelerate a deal for the young rising star as they found a 180 million euros agreement with Monaco.

It was his fifth league goal from outside the penalty area in 2017 - more than any other player in Ligue 1.

That saw them join PSG at the top of the Ligue 1 with four wins from four games at the start of the season.

PSG supporters then went into overdrive, preparing themselves to see images of Mbappe holding aloft his new shirt. "I would be insane to deprive myself of the best players and take the less good ones with me".
