Teenage soccer sensation Mbappe joins PSG from Monaco

Less than a month after the world-record arrival of Brazilian icon Neymar in the French capital and only hours before a record-breaking transfer window closed, 18-year-old Mbappe joined PSG on a season-long loan.

The only other significant purchase PSG made this summer was left-back Yuri Berchiche from Real Sociedad for a reported €16m.

PSG were previously punished under FFP rules in May 2014 when the Qatari owned club's sponsorship agreement with the Qatari Tourism Authority was deemed to have an unfair value by UEFA's independent investigation panel.

"The investigation will focus on the compliance of the club with the break-even requirement, particularly in light of its recent transfer activity", UEFA added.

"In the coming months, the Investigatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body will regularly meet in order to carefully evaluate all documentation pertaining to this case".

Who is Juan Foyth? Watch Tottenham's new signing in action
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the arrival of Juan Foyth from Estudiantes on a five-year deal. Foyth, an Argentina junior worldwide , has signed a long-term contract until June 2022.

UEFA will not give any further comments on this matter as the investigation is now ongoing.

However, the double signings mean PSG will need to generate an estimated 125m euros annually to match its 2015/16 financial statement, although that blow has been softened as Mbappe was taken on a loan deal, with a view to a permanent move, meaning his transfer will be settled in the next financial year.

This is PSG's last flex in a summer of flexes, and some of the world's best attacking players will be frustrated with lack of playing time in this set-up.

For the player himself, the transfer allows Mbappe to return to the city of his birth and form a potentially lethal attacking combination with Edinson Cavani and Neymar, and prove that his transfer justifies the hype and the potentially huge fee.

"I really wanted to be a part of the club's project, which is one of the most ambitious in Europe".

Lance Lynn critical of Cardinals after Mike Leake trade
Leake has posted a 4.21 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 154 innings in 26 starts this season, while recording a 103:35 K:BB. Essentially, the Mariners pick up the 3 years Leake has left and will be on the hook for $36 million.

He then picked out an overlapping Djibril Sidibe who quickly returned the pass to see Mbappe fire a first time shot low into the bottom corner.

Mbappe, who was born in a Paris suburb, burst onto the world stage last season, scoring 26 goals and making 14 assists in all competitions for Monaco, helping the club win the French league title and reach the Champions League semifinals.

"It was essential for French football that we keep and help develop such a great talent in our championship", said PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

In a statement, PSG said it was "surprised" by Uefa's approach and was "very confident in its ability to demonstrate that it will fully comply with Financial Fair Play rules for the fiscal year 2017/2018".
