The Latest Soccer Prodigy: Kylian Mbappe

19 years old Kylian Mbappe would never have believed that in just a few months his exceptional skills as a soccer player would help him soar to such heights. Part of the national team of France, Mbappe has become an icon in the global soccer world. Everyone wants to know him, he’s earnings huge amounts of money and even Nike has partnered with him to design special sneakers. The last year has been a rollercoaster ride for Mbappe, one that completely turned his life over, but in a good way. In the last year of his teenage life, Mbappe is enjoying a lifestyle that many of us dream about but never get to experience.

Mbappe’s skills had been praised by his European fans for a long time now, his loyal followers were steadfast about their speculation that Mbappe would become the next big thing in soccer. However, despite his loyal fans and superb skills, Mbappe was not a prolific player. His fan base was mostly from Europe before 2018 when he finally made his mark. Currently, Mbappe has around 20 million followers on his Instagram account and his name is on the lips of every serious soccer player across the world.

This teenage prodigy came in the limelight in the September of 2018, the Qatari owners of PSG made an agreement with AS Monaco to transfer Mbappe back to Paris for around 180,000,000 Euros. They also offered to give Mbappe a monthly salary of approximately 1,500,000 Euros. This made Mbappe the highest paid and most costly teenage soccer player in the world. Mbappe began earning a seven figure monthly salary at an age at which most teenagers are graduating from high school.

The Qatari owners were willing to pay an insane amount of money for such a young player, and by the looks of it, this investment has really paid off. Mbappe secured thirteen goals in the French Ligue, bringing the PSG trophy home. His achievements in the French Ligue helped him get in France’s national team and this eventually led to Mbappe becoming a world renowned player after his performance in the latest FIFA World Cup.

One could say with confidence that Mbappe had a major role in securing the FIFA trophy for France in 2018. What makes this even more interesting is the fact that he is the first teenage player in the last six decades to have bagged the World Cup final. Mbappe’s story is almost fairy tale like; he rose from nothing to one of the most prolific soccer players out there at the moment. He is certainly brimming with potential and there are countless people eagerly waiting to see where his career as a soccer player takes him. Will Mbappe continue to make his mark? Or will he end up as a one-time thing? Only time will be able to answer these questions for us. So far, Mbappe’s sudden fame has not managed to reach his head, and hopefully things will remain as they are.
