The ex-Monaco player joined Paris Saint-Germain, on loan, last summer and this time he is set to complete a £166 mn move, which was agreed in principle between the two clubs in 2017.

That amounts to £17,000-per-game ($22,455) (plus bonuses on top) and according to French daily L'Equipe, Mbappe is giving away the lot.

Kylian Mbappe is one of five or six players who will "dominate the world", Arsene Wenger has told beIN SPORTS.

Either way, both stars will be hoping they can continue France's run in the World Cup and perhaps even reach the final though they'll have to be Uruguay next before thinking of that. Interestingly, Mbappe became the youngest French goalscorer at the World Cup when he netted one against Peru in the group stage of the ongoing football World Cup.

Mbappe scored twice and produced an all-round fearsome display as France beat Argentina 4-3 to seal their spot in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

It became the first hurricane of the 2018 season early Friday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center . That's good news for Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands pummeled by a nasty hurricane season in 2017.

"Ronaldo was a forward player who was very, very quick", said Deschamps.

"We have to play as a team. A hard match is expecting us". However, we will know more once it is guaranteed.

Paul Pogba has lavished his France team-mate Kylian Mbappe with praise and admitted the 19-year-old has far more talent than he possessed at the same age.

"I don't like comparing players - Mbappe has to become Mbappe and that is all. Since I am responsible for everything, particularly when it doesn't go well, I'm very proud".

Beaten finalists four years ago, Argentina only reached the last 16 by the skin of their teeth after a shambolic group phase and despite a courageous effort against France, their ageing squad and lack of balance ultimately caught up with them. He back to back goals came in a gap of just of four minutes and right from the beginning of the match Mbappe looked threatening.
