[Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Everton midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye, with the fee reported to be £28 million] I’m immensely proud to sign for Paris Saint-Germain. After focussing on the AFCON with Senegal, I wanted to give a new boost to my club career by joining Paris Saint-Germain, one of the most structured and ambitious sports projects in Europe. I’d like to thank the directors, the coach and his staff for the confidence they have shown in me. I will do everything to justify the faith they have shown in me and to integrate into this talented squad. And of course I can’t wait to take in the amazing atmosphere of the Parc des Princes, which impressed me during my first seasons in France!

[Idrissa Gueye is confident that Kylian Mbappe can be kept at Paris Saint-Germain despite incessant talk of interest from Real Madrid] I think he knows what he can do with PSG. He can help us a lot and he has a big future. He’s not alone though, we’re a team and if we reach the top it’ll be as a team

[Gueye believes Neymar will remain fully committed to the cause for as long as he is at PSG] In training he’s even more impressive. He does what he wants. He can do anything with the ball and he’s unstoppable. He’s a good person and I think when he came back from injury he spoke to make things clear. He helps us to win and despite all that was said he’s been focused. He’s had to be very strong to come through all that he lived through

[Idrissa Gueye says Eden Hazard should not be concerning himself with trying to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid] Cristiano is Cristiano. Hazard has to write his own story in Madrid. Cristiano is an inspiration for everything

We were together when we were young but he was already clearly a very strong player. He played in the first team even though he was younger than us and when he came down to the second team it was a pleasure to see him train. I’m not surprised by how far he’s come. We’re still friends and keep in touch. We won a historic double at Lille thanks to him because he could do everything, he scored and gave assists

[Quizzed on whether Hazard is one of the best in the world] Without a doubt. I’ve always said it. England is a tough place to play but he triumphed and now he’ll do the same with Madrid

[Asked to pick any player from Real that he would want at PSG] Easy, Hazard

[Senegal team-mate Idrissa Gueye says Liverpool star Sadio Mane deserved to at least finish in the top three for the Ballon d’Or] He deserved to be on the podium. For me, he deserved the Ballon d’Or or at least the podium. Unfortunately, he is fourth and that’s a shame. I feel sad for him. It is a source of pride for all of Senegal. With what he did last season, he really deserved better

[Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye has revealed that he hopes to lure Senegal team-mate Kalidou Koulibaly to the French capital] I have not yet spoken to anyone about it, apart from one of my coaches who sent me a message and said that it would be fantastic. Yes, of course, it would be fantastic for him and above all for the club. It would be fantastic for me too to have another Senegalese guy at the club. I get on very well with him. I call him ‘my general.’ If he comes here, it would be good thing for him

[Idrissa Gueye is giving little credence to talk of a move away from Paris Saint-Germain, where he has enjoyed a fine first season] I’m used to these rumours. For each transfer window, it’s like that for me. Even in January, six months after I arrived at PSG, I was already linked to Chelsea, so I’m used to it. Everything is going well for me at the club, and I am often in contact with the sporting director [Leonardo] and there was never any question of a departure. He never spoke to me about transfers or letting me go. So, to me, these are just rumours in the transfer market because there isn’t much happening at the moment

Once we have resumed training, we must be ready to resume immediately and fight to go as far as possible, even if we are a little disadvantaged by the fact that the other leagues have resumed for some time. They will have had a lot more competition than us, but if we try to turn that into our favour, that is to say not to ask questions, to say the others have started again and not us, we can turn that on our side. [PSG can] tell ourselves that we will arrive much fresher than the others because they will have played a lot of games, and that we will be fresher to put them in difficulty and win as many games as possible
