Future Ballon d’Or winner? If Kylian Mbappe continues on the trajectory he’s currently on, then surely he will be able to call himself the world’s best player sooner rather than later.
The Frenchman has enjoyed a blistering few years since bursting onto the scene with AS Monaco, and has formed a formidable attacking trio at PSG, alongside Neymar and Edinson Cavani.
Ahead of France’s Euro qualifier against Andorra on Tuesday, Mbappe took to Instagram to post a video of him in training with his teammates, and showed exactly why he’s considered such a huge prospect with a range of stunning strikes.
It was that kind of unerring finishing in front of goal that saw the 20-year-old strike an incredible 39 times in just 43 games across all competitions, and with Cavani now 32, PSG’s number 9 role could be Mbappe’s to grab.
With a host of domestic titles to his name, and a World Cup trophy from last year to boot too, Mbappe’s main target will be to chase down that elusive Champions League title for PSG.
The Parisiens came unstuck due to VAR interference in their clash against Manchester United at the Parc des Princes, and with Mbappe a year older and wiser, could feel next season might be their time to lift the big one.
