Kylian Mbappé At 20 Is The World’s Most Decorated Young Footballer

Kylian Mbappé Lottin the French professional footballer who plays as a forward for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the France national team is considered to be the world’s most expensive player from a transfer value perspective by the CIES.

Kylian Mbappé marks his 20th birthday on December 20 as the world’s most decorated young footballer.

The former Monaco striker has taken his game to new heights since joining Paris Saint-Germain for €180million, the second most expensive deal in football history.

Few players have won the game’s greatest prize as a teenager but Mbappe did just that this year, scoring in the final as France triumphed 4-2 over Croatia at Russia 2018.

Mbappe’s 20th birthday on Thursday means he can no longer be considered the most exciting teenager in the sport, but our assessment of his Opta numbers suggests there is even more to come.
