Why Famous: Mbappé is regarded as one of the best football players in the world, being particularly notable for his dribbling, speed and finishing style. He made his debut in 2015, aged 16, and currently plays for Paris-Saint Germain as well as for the French national team.

In 2018 he was the second-most expensive association football transfer ever, settling a record €180 million fee when he was taken on by Paris Saint-Germain. At the time he was only 19. By the same age he had accrued Best FIFA Men's Player and had been nominated for the prestigious Ballon d'Or.

At the 2018 FIFA World Cup he became the youngest French player to score a goal in a World Cup, and the second after Pele to score in a Final, which France won for the second time in history.
