Mbappe kicks off title celebrations for PSG

He may only be 20 years of age, but already Kylian Mbappe had won the Ligue 1 title on three occasions.

Since making his debut for Monaco in the 2015/16 season, he won the championship with the same club the following year and then in each of the next two seasons with Paris Saint-Gemrain.

At the same time, his individual numbers have been rising at a frightening pace and this is outlined in the above graphic.

His appearances tally his gone from 14 to 44 to 46 to 40.

His goals scored figure has similarly risen from one to 26 to 21 to 36 and his assists have gone from one to 14 to 15 to 17.

With five matches still to be played in the current campaign, these statistics for 2018/19 could increase further before the summer.

It’s a season that has seen him take on extra responsibility as a leader of the team, given the injuries suffered by Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

“All I have achieved until now has been significant, but I still have a lot to do,” the player said after winning the Kopa Award in December.

“I lack a bit of consistency and can’t have achieved everything in just two years.”

He has no equal in France right now and is 11 goals ahead of Lille‘s Nicolas Pepe in the race to be the French league’s top scorer.

In Europe, only Lionel Messi is ahead of him in the Golden Shoe race, as the Argentine has 33 goals and the Frenchman has 30.

As one of the youngest stars at the top of world football, Mbappe‘s value is the highest of all current players, according to CIES Football Observatory.

They value him at 216 million euros, ahead of Harry Kane (197m euros), Neymar (197m euros), Mohamed Salah (173m euros) and Lionel Messi (170m euros).
