Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe, at 18 the most expensive French player of all time, said Sunday he wanted to "mark the history" of the French capital with his new club.

Mbappe, who hails from the northeastern Parisian surburb of Bondy, joined PSG from Monaco on a season-long loan last week in a deal that will make him the second most expensive footballer in history.

His overall transfer fee could rise to 180 million euros ($215 million) including add-ons, which would make Mbappe second only to new team-mate Neymar on the all-time list of costliest transfers.

"Big players have marked history in their country whether with the national team or their club," Mbappe said in an interview with TF1, adding that it would have been premature to have left France.
