Not the only star in town! PSG forward Kylian Mbappe watches on as Gareth Bale’s new side Los Angeles FC extend their lead at the top of the MLS Western Conference with a 2-0 win against New York Red Bulls

  • Kylian Mbappe was in attendance as Los Angeles FC faced New York Red Bulls 
  • LAFC have just signed Gareth Bale after he left Real Madrid on a free transfer
  • Juventus and Italy icon Giorgio Chiellini will also join the MLS side next season
  • And Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe watched on as LA won the game 2-0
  • They are now four points clear at the top of the MLS Western Conference table 

Kylian Mbappe was in attendance as Gareth Bale’s new club Los Angeles FC pulled further clear in America’s top division. 

MLS leaders LAFC signed Welsh wizard Bale on a one-year deal on a free transfer in a shock move for the former Real Madrid star.

And the Paris Saint-Germain forward showed he won’t be the only big name in California by attending their match on Sunday night. 

The MLS Twitter account posted: ‘‘sup @KMbappe. Taking in #LAFC x #RBNY at the Banc.’

Bale, 32, spent nine seasons with the Spanish giants after joining for a then-world-record fee of £85million but his time there petered out amid fan frustration with his frequent injuries.

His contract with Los Blancos finally ran out this summer and he departed on a free transfer.

With the 106-cap international keen to get regular game time ahead of Wales’ World Cup crusade in November, several clubs were vying for his services, including Championship side Cardiff.

But the former Tottenham and Southampton star plumped for Steve Cherundolo’s west-coast outfit LAFC on a 12-month contract.

And Mbappe, who signed a massive new contract this summer at PSG to reportedly make him the highest-paid player in the world, watched on at the Banc as LAFC won 2-0 after two goals in four minutes from Cristian Arango and Diego Palacios.

The result leaves them four points clear of second-placed Real Salt Lake in the Western Conference table, with a game in hand.
