Fresh from putting an end to his contract saga by agreeing a staggering £650,000-per-week, three-year deal, Mbappe relaxed in Cannes on Wednesday alongside PSG team-mate Achraf Hakimi.

‘I am convinced that here I can continue to grow at a club that provides everything necessary to perform at the highest level.
‘I am also delighted to continue to play in France, the country where I was born, where I have grown up and where I have made my name.
‘I would like to thank the President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, for his trust, his understanding and his patience.
‘I would also like to thank all the fans of Paris Saint-Germain, both in France and around the world, for their support, especially in recent months. Together, side by side and ambitious, we will make magic in Paris.’
Mbappe confirmed his contract renewal both through a video on Twitter and in person prior to the 5-0 rout of Metz, in which he netted a hat-trick.
