Mbappe Reveals He Turned Down Arsenal For PSG
Striker Kylian Mbappe has revealed that he turned down an offer from Arsene Wenger and joined Paris Saint-Germain.
The France international made the revelation after he was unveiled at his new club on Wednesday.
"Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is 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 for me. But, of course, Paris St Germain was the main option." He told Daily Telegraph.
Mbappe added that he weighed up the advantages and disadvantages of all offers.
He said his family gave him the go-ahead to make his decision and he chose PSG in order to develop himself for the long term.
The 18-year-old will now team up with former Barcelona playmaker Neymar at the Paris club.
