He moved to PSG in 2017 and has since scored 84 goals in 116 appearances for the French side, winning two more Ligue 1 titles.
The 21-year-old also won the Best Young Player award at the 2018 World Cup as France beat Croatia in the final to lift the trophy.

“Mbappe is the future and the present,” Ronaldo said, as per Marca.
“He’s a fantastic player, very fast, and he will be the future.”
