I rejected Wenger to seal switch to PSG, reveals Mbappe

By Staff Reporter

Kylian Mbappe has revealed he turned down Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to sign for boyhood club Paris St Germain. The 18-year-old France striker, who was yesterday unveiled as a PSG player, rebuffed all other interest to return to the French capital.

Mbappe grew up in Paris and completed his footballing education with Monaco before joining the Parc des Princes club on loan, with a deal in place for him to make the move permanent next summer for £166m.

Mbappe admitted to Arsenal's interest, saying: "Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, a great coach.

"He has a great reputation here in France, he's well respected and knows how to develop young players. This was a real option. But Paris St Germain was the main option."

Mbappe opted to work under Unai Emery and alongside Neymar.

Mbappe added: "We weighed up the advantages and disadvantages of all clubs but my family told me it had to be my decision.

"Being here is like going back home for me. I used to come to this stadium to watch games."
