Mbappe, 18, only shot to prominence last season after helping Monaco reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League and win the Ligue 1 title.

The 18-year-old French worldwide 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.

He could link up at PSG with Brazilian forward Neymar, who PSG signed this month from Barcelona for a world record fee of 222 million euros.

Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has stated that while Kylian Mbappe is a Monaco player for now, that may not be the case soon.

Sky Sports are claiming that PSG will initially bring in Mbappe on a season-long loan with the obligation to buy him for £166m next summer.

Midfielder Meite was bought by Monaco earlier this summer from another Belgian club, Zulte Waregem, for eight million euros.

"Today he is still an AS Monaco player. But after it went 4-0, I didn't need him".

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is adamant that the fair play rules work and the European football's governing body will punish those who infringe it.

Stevan Jovetic, his touted replacement, was at Stade Louis II to watch Monaco tear Marseille apart again, having scored four goals in each of their three meetings last season - including one in the French Cup. And what role now for Angel di Maria, who, since joining for over €55m from Manchester United, has been PSG's best supplier of passes to Cavani, and, before that, to the club's former figurehead, Zlatan Ibrahimovic?

Emery showed he can excel at hurting European teams by hitting them on the counter as head coach of Sevilla, and while his current club prefer to try and dominate their foes at home and overseas, sometimes it is smarter to be humble and play on the break instead of naively trying to keep possession, no matter the situation.
