The 18-year-old France global spoke for the first time as a PSG player since his transfer went through last week and revealed his initial intentions to remain with Monaco, as well as explaining his decision to turn down a move away from Ligue 1.
Speaking at his unveiling at the Parc des Princes, the striker from the Parisian suburb of Bondy - something PSG emphasised, along with his childhood support, throughout - said he was convinced the club will win the Champions League.
According to Vasilyev, the deal's price tag was within the market framework and Monaco FC had proposals similar to those of other clubs as well.
"I'm starving for trophies and I want to win year after year, starting right now".
Mbappe's arrival in the capital follows the world-record signing of Neymar from Barcelona, and the Frenchman is eager to continue his development alongside a highly accomplished cast of players. "And if that kid has money in his pocket he comes to games here".
The 18-year-old addressed Monaco's fans in a message posted on his official Twitter account, saying: "I just wanted to thank you for all the love you've shown me during our time together". "There were events that have changed my opinion".
"Being here is like going back home for me".
Mbappe was welcomed to PSG's training ground by manager Unai Emery in the afternoon before undertaking his first session with his new side, finishing off the day with a bike session in the gym with former Monaco team-mate Layvin Kurzawa. "They have an incredible project and I want to improve and learn from my teammates".
