French sensation Kylian Mbappe is on the verge of finalizing his loan move to fellow Ligue 1 club Paris Saint Germain
The AS Monaco has agreed to join the club on loan ahead of a permanent 166 million move, which is most likely to occur next summer.
The permanent signing of Mbappe will certainly raise a lot of questions and allegations against PSG about UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.
It was reported last week that PSG had agreed to sign Mbappe for a fee of 150 million with Lucas Moura and Goncalo Guedes in return, but the deal broke down due to Lucas not wanting to leave PSG and Guedes opting to join Spanish club Valenica instead of AS Monaco.
Mbappe was also linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United over the course of the summer transfer window but PSG won the race to sign another star player followed by the signing of their 193 million man, Neymar Jr.
AS Monaco has accepted that Mbappe no longer wants to play for the team, thus manager Leonardo Jardim dropped him to the bench for Monaco’s first two league matches against Dijon and Marseille.
France head coach, Didier Deschamps has also confirmed that he has got the news of Mbappe wanting to change clubs ahead of his side’s fixtures against Luxemborg and Netherlands over the International break, next week.
“He’s changing club but staying in Ligue 1.”- Deschamps has reportedly told French reporters.
UEFA are no longer eligible to inspect PSG’s account until the next summer of 2018 as this year’s FFP deadline has already passed on the 17 of June.
If PSG are found guilty of breaking the FFP rule, then they will face heavy charges from UEFA and will also be expelled from further UEFA competitions.
However, though PSG can still save themselves from this situation if they sell players over the next four days remaining in the transfer window. They have already sold Blaise Matuidi to Juventus and according to reports Serge Aurier is also set to leave the club.
