The France international was officially introduced as a Paris Saint-Germain player on Wednesday. Mbappé has initially joined the club on loan from Monaco. A permanent deal worth some 180 million euros is set to be completed in 12 months' time.
It's been one year since Aleksander Ceferin was elected president of UEFA, on a promise of reforming the institution. Now he is looking to implement changes to Financial Fair Play and a shorter transfer window.

UEFA have opened a Financial Fair Play investigation into Paris Saint-Germain. The French club have had an extravagant transfer window, sewing up a deal for Kylian Mbappe and breaking the transfer record for Neymar.
Just hours after La Liga refused to accept Neymar's transfer, Barcelona released a statement saying that the Brazilian striker's release clause had been paid. A few hours after that, PSG announced Neymar's signing.
