The 20-year-old Frenchman is one of the hottest young players in football and wanted by giants in the Europe.
Kylian Mbappe may only just have turned 20, but the Paris Saint-Germain attacker has already emerged as one of the game’s leading players, having helped France to win the World Cup in 2018, during which he won the prize as the tournament’s outstanding young player.
Scoring twice in the final against Croatia made him the first teenager to net on such an occasion since Pele in 1958 and helped increase the marketability of the former Monaco ace, who is the game’s second-most expensive player ever behind club-mate Neymar.
Indeed, a recent study by CIES Observatory suggests Mbappe is currently the most valuable player in the game.
But how much Mbappe worth? What is his real market value?
Kylian Mbappe is top of Zinedine Zidane’s wish list this summer as he tries to rebuild the Real Madrid squad at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
According to French magazine France Football, who included both Zidane and Mbappe on their front cover with the caption ‘Operation Mbappe’, Real Madrid will make a big money move for the youngster.
The story also hints at the possible cost of the Paris Saint-Germain forward, with 280 million euros being the prominent figure.
Mbappe signed for the French club permanently last summer for 180 million euros having spent the season before on loan from Monaco to avoid financial punishment.
