Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe was welcomed by thousands of fans as he finally arrived at Paris Saint-Germain, his home town club.
He has joined the French giants on a loan deal that will make him the world’s second most expensive player after PSG will trigger the permanent £166m buy-out option next season.
It seemed that the French striker was always eager for a move to PSG as he took part in his first training session at the club on Wednesday – with a smile on his face all throughout the session.
And he was quick to hit it off with Neymar on day one – the player who left Barcelona wondering what went wrong following his world-record transfer to PSG earlier this summer.
But it could have been a lot different as Mbappe revealed that he was wanted by Arsenal and for an instance he seriously considered a switch to the Emirates as he admires Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
“Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is a great coach,” Mbappe told The Telegraph today as he was finally unveiled by the club.
“He has a great reputation here in France, he’s well-respected and knows how to develop young players. This was a real option for me.”
“But, of course, Paris Saint-Germain was the main option.”
The former Monaco man will now form blockbuster attacking force with Edinson Cavani and Neymar.

Mbappe also took to Twitter and posted photos of himself with Neymar.
The French wonder-kid posted a crown and the Brazilian flag alongside pictures of the duo together.
