KYLIAN ME SOFTLY Kylian Mbappe is all smiles as new Paris Saint-Germain star enjoys plane ride after singing initiation song as new club get set to face Metz


The 18-year-old, who moved on loan from Monaco ahead of a permanent switch to the French capital, also had to sing into a water bottle during his team initiation.

But he, Julian Draxler and Layvin Kurzawa appeared to be enjoying themselves as striker Edinson Cavani captured a selfie on their flight.

Mbappe completed his switch the Parc des Princes on transfer deadline day and was unveiled after the international break, signing a deal that guarantees him £140,000 a week.

The former Monaco man joins Brazilian superstar Neymar on the club’s books, with manager Unai Emery enjoying an embarrassment of riches in the attacking third.

Neymar, 25, has hit the ground at 100mph since moving from Barcelona for around £200million.

He netted in PSG’s wins over Guingamp and Toulouse, before helping them beat St Etienne.

And now it is hoped Mbappe can join in the goal-fest for the moneybags club.

After completing his switch he was also given the task of singing an initiation song for the squad before flying out.

The striker sang a song in French that did not appear to impress Dani Alves, who is a regular sharer of his own material he plays on the guitar.

One player who did not travel with the squad is former Newcastle and Hull man Hatem Ben Arfa, whose career has taken another turn for the worse after he was told to train with the reserves, prompting the France international to threaten legal action.
