Mbappe starving for success

06 September 2017 13:45:43 EST

Kylian Mbappe has outlined his desire to 'win everything' with new club Paris St-Germain, whilst admitting he did not intend leaving Monaco this season.

The French international teenager made the move to PSG on deadline day last week, initially on a season-long loan deal, but with an obligation for his new employers to buy the forward for £165m in 2018.

The move came just weeks after the Ligue 1 club broke the world transfer record to sign Neymar for £198m from Barcelona.

Mbappe helped Monaco to the French title last season, while he also made quite an impression in the Champions League, scoring six times in ten games.

He says he wants to better last season's tally and is eager to join the winning ethos that he believes exists at Paris St-Germain.

"It was important for me not to leave France after just six months at the highest level," he said.

"I'm an ambitious player who always wants to improve. So my objective is obviously to score more than last season.

"But individual ambitions should always be part of a wider ambition, and that is for the team to win everything."

Paris St-Germain are 1/5000 to win the French title this season, while Monaco are 100/1.

Mbappe's new club meanwhile are 12121/1 to land the Champions League trophy they crave. The forward says he was prepared to play for Monaco for another season.

"I had given my priority to Monaco, but certain things happened," he added.

"I will speak about it very soon and say everything that happened. I have a lot of respect for [Monaco vice president] Vadim Vasilyev, who is a remarkable man. But some things happened.

"It's a great pleasure to join PSG, a very ambitious club that wants to become the best."
