his Ronaldo posters for pictures of himself. Given that he’d already won two Ligue 1 titles and a World Cup by that point, we can hardly blame him for revelling in his success! 4. Mbappe is the youngest player to play for AS Monaco, having been just 16 years and 347 days old when he emerged from the bench to replace Fabio Coentrao for the final few minutes of a 1-1 draw against Caen in December 2015. This broke a club record previously belonging to the legendary Thierry Henry that had stood for 21 years. Kylian Mbappe started his career at AS Monaco before heading to PSG. AP Photo/Claude Paris 5. Two months later, Mbappe also became Monaco’s youngest-ever goal scorer when he opened his account for the Ligue 1 side in a 3-1 win over Troyes, aged 17 years and 62 days. The previous record holder on that occasion? Henry, once again. – Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S. Only)- ESPN+ viewer’s guide: Bundesliga, Serie A, Welcome I hope you like dogs doormat
MLS, FA Cup and more Transfer interest 6. Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has an infamously strong track record when it comes to almost signing some of the greatest players of the modern era. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Didier Drogba, Samuel Eto’o, Yaya Toure and Cristiano Ronaldo are just some of the stellar names who could have plied their trades with the Gunners, were it not for the intervention of fate. It has emerged that Mbappe is also a member of Wenger’s “nearly men,” having come within weeks of making the move to North London in 2017. With his time at Monaco coming to an end, he admitted that Arsenal were a “real option” as it was his “dream” to be coached by Wenger. The pair even met for a chat. Unfortunately for the Gunners, the youngster ultimately decided that he wasn’t keen to leave his family behind in France and therefore decided to sign for PSG to be closer to them. 7. Arsenal weren’t the only Premier League club to court Mbappe either, with London rivals Chelsea also missing out on the opportunity to snaffle him up in 2012 just before he went stratospheric. As the story goes, Mbappe was handed a trial by the Blues, but their academy bosses ultimately decided to advise against signing the fleet-footed striker there and then as he didn’t offer enough defensively. A second trial was organised, and Mbappe was gifted a personalised Chelsea shirt, but any deal was nipped in the bud by the player’s mother, who reportedly admonished the club, saying: “Either they sign him now, or within five years they’ll have to offer €50m to tie him down.”
In fairness, the only thing she got wrong was underestimating the prospective future transfer fee by several orders of magnitude. 8. Mbappe is the second-most-expensive footballer of all time after joining PSG from Monaco initially on a yearlong loan in 2017, then in a deal worth €180m (€145m plus €35m in add-ons) the following summer. However, he finds himself behind teammate Neymar, whose dizzying €222m transfer from Barcelona to PSG in the summer of 2017 remains the largest in history. play 2:04 Alejandro Moreno breaks down Kylian Mbappe’s hat trick in PSG’s win vs. Barcelona.Welcome I hope you like dogs doormat Perfect for PSG 9. After adding another three goals to his tally at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night, Mbappe is now the third-highest goal scorer in PSG’s history with 111 in just 153 games. Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic (156 goals in 180 games) and Edinson Cavani (200 in 301) have scored more for the club. 10. Mbappe has scored 24 goals in the Champions League, putting him level with the likes of Paul Scholes, Luis Figo and Gonzalo Higuain. He’s got some way to go to catch Cristiano Ronaldo (134) and Messi (119). But when it comes to his head-to-head record against Messi on the pitch, Mbappe has faced the Barcelona superstar only twice thus far, both in tournament knockout ties. The first was France’s 4-3 win over Argentina in the second round of the 2018 World Cup and the second was on Tuesday. 11. Mbappe is only the third player to score a Champions League hat trick against Barcelona, and the first player to do so in almost quarter of a century Faustino Asprilla of Newcastle and Andriy Shevchenko of Dynamo Kiev are the others, both doing so back in 1997.
