Life in Paris
Mbappe was born and grew up in Paris, whose team is not quite the global brand they are now. As such, when he first got into football, he supported Real Madrid and had many family friends who were AC Milan friends.
His development would begin with AS Bondy, who was coached by Mbappe’s father. It was just nepotism that got his foot in the door, though, and other coaches at the club praised him profusely.
As he approached his teen years, he received offers from some of the world’s biggest clubs to join their academies, including Real Madrid and Chelsea.
He decided to stick closer to home for the meantime, though, and elected to join Monaco.
In the 2015-16 season, Kylian Mbappe started breaking into the Monaco first team, breaking Thierry Henry’s record to become the club’s youngest-ever player. In 2016 he scored his first hat trick for the club while still only 17 years old.
In Mbappe’s last season at the club, the side won League 1, and the young forward had found the back of the net 26 times in all competitions. However, they couldn’t hold onto their prodigy any longer.
Many clubs were clamoring for Mbappe’s signature. Real Madrid felt confident that, as the most magnetic club in the world and Mbappe’s boyhood team, they would lure him to Spain. However, with fierce competition for forward places at a Real Madrid fronted by Ronaldo, Bale, and Benzema, Mbappe was convinced to give PSG a chance.
In his first season, he lived up to expectations, starting regularly and holding his own next to Neymar in PSG’s front line.
It was in the 2018-19 season when he really took things to the elite level, finishing the season as Ligue 1 Player of the Year and top scorer. He would be top scorer for the following 2 seasons also.
As his contract at PSG started to near its end, many thought Kylian Mbappe would finally make the move to Madrid that he’d been dreaming of since he was a child. However, at the end of the 2021-22 season, it was announced that PSG had offered him an unprecedented contract.
Upon hearing that his club had missed out on their man, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez publicly decried the financial pull in Paris, seemingly unaware of his own club’s decades-long position as the Galactico buyers and Barcelona’s unsustainable spending.
Mbappe has started the 2022-23 season in his usual great form for PSG. French fans have seen that he performs just as well for his country, with his 2018 World Cup performances as a teenager going down in history. In 2022 they expect nothing less than greatness once again.
Kylian Mbappe Fast Facts
