Kylian Mbappe celebrated his new contract with Paris Saint-Germain in style, scoring a hat trick as the French champions rounded out their Ligue 1 campaign with a 5-0 victory over Metz on Saturday.
PSG had confirmed Mbappe’s shock U-turn in snubbing a transfer to Real Madrid to sign a new three-year deal in Paris just minutes before kickoff at the Parc des Princes.
Within the first 30 minutes, Mbappe reaffirmed just what a coup the decision was. The 23-year-old scored twice, in the 24th and 28th minutes, the second courtesy of a sublime through ball from Lionel Messi.
By half-time, the score was 3-0 and there was further cause for celebration. Neymar scored his 100th goal for PSG after being set up for a simple finish by Angel di Maria, playing his final game for the club before leaving on a free transfer this summer.
