Kylian Mbappe has said he understands if Monaco fans feel let down by his big-money move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappe's uncertain future was one of the stories of the summer as Europe's top clubs scrambled to sign the talented French forward.

But PSG won the race for the 18-year-old, who has joined the club on a season-long loan deal, with the Parisians due to make the transfer permanent next summer.

They will pay Monaco £200 million for Mbappe, but even the astronomical fee may not ease the disappointment of his former fans.

Mbappe directed a message on Twitter to Monaco's supporters on Monday.

"I just wanted to thank you for all the love you gave me during our time together. Never have I been shown such affection, support, and strength,'' Mbappe wrote.

"I know that some of you do not understand my choice and that a feeling of anger is born in you, I understand.

"I also understand some whistles during our last [game], because false information circulated throughout the 'soap opera Mbappe.'

"I have not changed, my entourage has not changed, our values remain the same: humility, simplicity and respect.

"One thing is for sure: you can be angry, hate or even whistle but you can never stop me from loving you because the truth is there, I love you.''
