  • Mbappe Becomes Most Expensive Teenage Player After PSG Agree £166m Deal with Monaco

Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain, have signed France global, Kylian Mbappe on a season-long loan deal from AS Monaco.

In a statement, European football's governing body said: "The Investigatory Chamber of the Uefa Club Financial Control Body has opened a formal investigation into Paris Saint-Germain as part of its ongoing monitoring of clubs under Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations".

PSG have the option to buy Mbappé, the France striker, on a contract that stretches until June 2022, which is understood to be a formality. "Alongside my new teammates, I intend to help the team reach the very high objectives it has set".

France global Mbappe's temporary move was finally confirmed on deadline day with PSG having the option to make the deal permanent next summer for a reported 180million euros.

"Among players of his age, he is without doubt the most promising in the world due to his vast technical, physical and mental qualities", PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said.

Mbappe might even struggle to get time.

"Among players of his age, he is without doubt the most promising in the world".

Paris Saint-Germain smashed the world record fee set by Paul Pogba's move from Juventus to Manchester United past year by triggering Neymar's €220 million release clause at Barcelona.

With the clock ticking towards the close of the transfer window at 2200 GMT, local media said Crystal Palace were trying to bring in Liverpool centre back Mamadou Sakho, who played for the club on loan last term, with Chelsea in talks with Leicester City in a bid to sign midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

"Under our colours, in the midst of truly great players, Kylian will continue his progression in a way that will also benefit the French national team in the months and years to come".

Qatar Sports Investments bought PSG in 2012 and have not been afraid to spend as they try to win the Champions League for the first time.

Clubs can ultimately be kicked out of European competition for flouting the rules although until now UEFA has tried to negotiate settlements with offenders.

PSG have already incurred sanctions for a previous violation and were slapped with a 60-million-euro fine, 40 million of which suspended, in 2014, and saw their squad for the Champions League cut from 25 to 21 players.
