PSG 'will rest Neymar against Metz' to save him for Celtic tie

Mbappe could get his Paris Saint-Germain debut following his loan move from Monaco which is set to be made permanent next summer.

"What I want is to play, so you go to a club where you can do that", Mbappe said.

Mbappe was also subject to heavy transfer speculation over the summer, eventually moving to PSG himself in a freakish loan move from Monaco that will eventually lead to a €180m permanent switch next summer. "It would make me happy, if I could help him like that".

After starting in Monaco's season opener last month, the 18-year-old forward was an unused substitute in the next three consecutive matches amid his impending move to hometown club PSG, but the France global is in line to face Metz on Friday, according to Emery.

Neymar also scored in the demolition of Metz. The long-serving Arsenal manager even went as far to compare Mbappe to one of the game's greatest ever players.

Neymar became the most expensive footballer ever, following his world-record €222million transfer in August.

"When I met with some coaches, I told them, and they can confirm, that my priority is Monaco".

Having switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation to accommodate Mbappe alongside Neymar and Julian Draxler behind lone striker Cavani, PSG's star-studded attack looked crowded more often than free-flowing in the opening 30 minutes.

Henry says Paris Saint-Germain's "scary" front three must lead the club to Champions League glory for them to be deemed a success. "I used to come to this stadium when I was a boy to watch games". For me he is in the 10 per cent. "PSG have some great players and I hope we continue to improve".

"Today I am not very convinced that we can maintain it. We controlled the game from start to finish".

Meanwhile, speaking with Le Parisien, Mbappe has said that he is not targeting the Ballon d'Or for himself after his move to PSG, but that he is hoping to aid Neymar in his quest for individual recognition.
