Mbappe to join Neymar at PSG

In a surprise move, multiple sources on Sunday night are reporting that Paris Saint-Germain have agreed a deal to sign the highly-rated French global - but have to wait until next year to buy him outright so as not to fall foul of Financial Fair Play rules.

They racked up their fourth successive win, 3-0 against third-placed Saint-Etienne.

However, Leonardo Jardim has already lost three of his key players from the side that became champions of France in 2017 with Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva sold to Manchester City and Tiemoue Bakayoko leaving for Chelsea.

L'Equipe is reporting that PSG and AS Monaco have come to an agreement. Well, thanks to a couple of leaked images of Monaco's latest unveiling, that's how.

18-year-old Monaco star Kylian Mbappe is one of the most coveted talents on the planet, but it looks like PSG have won the race to sign him.

The 22-year-old Balde, who plays for Senegal, scored 16 league goals for Lazio in Serie A last season and has signed a five-year deal.

The hosts did not have to wait too long for the second though and Falcao smashed down the middle from the spot in the 20th minute after Fabinho was tripped in the area by Aston Villa loanee Jordan Amavi.

Marseille's first defeat of the season leaves it in sixth place with seven points.

Earlier on Sunday, Marcelo Bielsa's Lille stopped the rot after back-to-back defeats as Nicolas de Preville's superb strike gave them a 1-1 draw at Angers.

Collecting the ball some 25 meters (yards) out on the left, he cut inside two defenders and launched a curling, dipping strike into the right corner in the 68th minute.

If the move goes through as expected, he will have worn his new Monaco shirt just twice in competitive action, in the Trophee des Champions against PSG and the Ligue 1 opener against Toulouse.

Midfielder Lassana Coulibaly headed Angers ahead in the 60th.
