Kylian Mbappe scored 24 goals in all competitions for Monaco last season

Kylian Mbappe has written a heartfelt message to Monaco fans who criticised him during the transfer saga which ended with him joining Ligue 1 rivals Paris St-Germain.

After weeks of speculation, the 18-year-old France forward moved on a season-long loan to PSG, who have an option to buy the teenager next summer for a reported 180m euros (£166m).

Mbappe was booed by Monaco fans as he sat on the substitutes’ bench during his last game before he joined their title rivals, a 6-1 defeat of Marseille.

“I know that a few of you don’t understand my choice and that you’re angry and I understand that,” he wrote in a statement on Twitter.
