Player ratings as Kylian Mbappe grabs hat-trick after contract announcement

Kylian Mbappe scored three times after signing his new Paris Saint-Germain contract as the Ligue 1 champions rounded off the season with a 5-0 win at home to Metz.

The 23-year-old addressed a packed out Parc des Princes prior to kick-off after turning down Real Madrid’s advances and committing his future in the French capital until 2025.

Defeat for Metz meant that they have been relegated to Ligue 2 after Saint-Etienne earned a point at Nantes.

Though PSG ran out routine winners in the end, they were given a bit of a scare early on after Farid Boulaya had an effort tipped onto the post by Keylor Navas, while a couple of crosses scythed right through their six-yard box.

But Mbappe broke the deadlock midway through the first half with a rather trademark goal, racing onto a through ball from the departing Angel Di Maria and rounding Marc-Aurele Caillard to sweep home.
