Kylian Mbappe is a Champions League win away from 'completing football' at the age of 21

Paris Saint-Germain are through to the Champions League final for the first time in their 50-year history.

They won’t be favourites in Sunday’s final if Bayern Munich join them, with the German club facing Lyon in tonight’s other semi.

But with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe leading their line, PSG have the ability to beat any side on their day.

At 28, many fans believe Neymar has wasted a lot of his incredible potential.

Ok, he’s won league titles at Barcelona and PSG - as well as the Champions League in Spain - but many predicted he’d be the best player in the world by now.

Instead, a 35-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo and a 33-year-old Lionel Messi still reign supreme.


While some will view Neymar hasn’t quite reached the heights his ability suggests he should have, it’s another story altogether for Mbappe.

At 21-years-old, Mbappe is 90 minutes away from 'completing football'.

Ok, that’s not quite true but he’s achieved an incredible amount at such a young age.

He’s won four Ligue 1 titles at two different clubs, two Coupe de France titles, two Coupe de la Ligue titles, the Golden Boy award and a World Cup.

Now, he’s 90 minutes away from winning the Champions League.

Reminder: he’s 21-years-old.

All he needs to do is win the Ballon d’Or and perhaps win a league title in a country other than France and he’s pretty much done the lot.

In 122 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain, Mbappe has notched 90 goals justifying why the French club paid a reported £166 million to sign him.


He’s even been compared to the legendary Ronaldo Nazario on more than one occasion with Rio Ferdinand becoming the latest to do just that.

“He's the nearest thing we've seen to Ronaldo,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport on Tuesday night.

“In terms of impact on the world scene as a teenager, Michael Owen is on a level. 

“He makes you feel like a kid again watching football. He makes you get goosebumps before he's even kicked a ball.”
