Kylian Mbappe excited by 'extraordinary' chance to play with Neymar at PSG

Arsene Wenger believes the January transfer window should be scrapped as a concept

Al-Khelaifi, speaking at the official unveiling of French striker Kylian Mbappe, one of the players whose signing has sparked the probe, said PSG had respected all of UEFA's rules.

"So it was a real discovery for me".

Wenger explored the possibility of a deal for the 18-year-old early in the summer, when it was widely reported the pair held a three-hour meeting in the French capital.

Kylian Mbappe has said he understands if Monaco fans feel let down by his big-money move to Paris St Germain.

Mbappe admitted to Arsenal's interest, telling the Daily Telegraph: " Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is a great coach.

"I think it's a good opportunity for him and he needed to move because now he can really play and show what he's capable of".

"It also had to be a long-term decision".

As to what had motivated him to leave the reigning champions, who like PSG have won their first four games of the season, he added: "For me it was the project that was going to allow me to develop, to learn while winning".

"I used to come to this stadium when I was a boy to watch games".

"I informed the club by e-mail and advised that we do not accept the situation". It was a whole new world.

"An idea has been reinforced since I was a kid - not just because I went to Chelsea".

"It was important for me to come to Paris in this moment of my life. I am improving and it's great to have signed with such an ambitious club".

"Now I am on the other side of the camera, on the other side of the TV".

The French global was booed by his old fans while he sat on the bench during Ligue 1 champions Monaco's 6-1 thrashing of Marseille, their last game before Mbappe left for title rivals PSG.
