The chance to challenge to win the Uefa Champions League was the driving force behind Kylian Mbappe's decision to move from Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain as the teenager said he was not concerned with having a large price tag placed on his shoulders.

Mbappe burst onto European football's main stage after scoring six goals in the Champions League knockout rounds en route to the semi-finals with Monaco last season, but elite clubs from around the continent had been aware of his talent many years prior to his breakthrough.

The teenage sensation joined his hometown club from Monaco on loan, with a compulsory purchase option at the end of the season, believed to be in the region of €180 million.

Mbappe, speaking as he was officially unveiled at the Parc des Princes, said it had been vital for him to stay in France despite strong interest from Real Madrid.

The Brazilian moved to the French capital for a world record £198m earlier this summer, breaking up the famous "MSN" trio of Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, which had helped the Catalan club achieve trophy-laden success.

"I want to do even better than last season", Mbappe said at his media presentation, quoted by FourFourTwo.
