Kylian Mbappé set to be the world’s best

At just 19 years of age, Mbappé is already one of the stars of the sport, and it is quite scary to think just how good he could become. He is part of the formidable attacking line at Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain as they continue to dominate French football. This has led to many punters using the latest Bet365 sign up bonus offer to back them for Europe’s premier competition this season, as they remain one of the favourites. Could they now do it on the big stage and land that converted champions league title?

Mbappé played a major role in the French winning the recent World Cup in Russia. In the process was awarded the young player of the tournament. He is becoming the record breaker and tied with the great Pele when scoring a brace against Argentina in the round of 16 in Russia. He then again equalled Pele as he became the second teenager to score in a World Cup final. A remarkable feat from a world class talent. Following his retirement could we be talking about him in the same breath as we do with Pele still today?

Mbappé started his youth career for AS Bondy, climbing through the ranks. This led to him transferring to Monaco where he shot on to the scene as a top young talent. Scoring 16 goals in 41 starts the top clubs came calling, this led to PSG signing him on loan and the following season paying a jaw dropping €180 million for his permanent signature. This already seems to be money well spent considering he is the most exciting talent in the game. This currently puts him as the second most expensive player in the world.

He is renowned for his electric pace and dribbling abilities, which is why he scores so many goals. He is a constant threat for any defence. And in his debut season in the French capital was part of their domestic treble winning squad. He is in imperious form this season. He helped the team break an 82-year-old record of eight victories in succession in their rout of Lyon. Mbappé scored four goals himself in the 5-0 thrashing to further enhance his ever growing reputation.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have long been the world’s best, but looking at statistics Mbappé is far ahead of the pair when they were his age. He has now scored 10 goals in just 25 appearances for the French senior side, in addition to his 58 in 112 club level appearances. At the same age Messi had only netted 25 club goals and Ronaldo 17. In Mbappé there is little doubt we are talking about a future all-time legend.
