AS Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe has been the find of the season in Europe as he is garnering a lot of interest from all the big clubs in the continent after his exhilarating performances for the French side.

The 18-year old is breaking records week in week out this season as he became the youngest player in 21st century to score 15 league goals across ‘big five leagues’ after scoring yet another stunning goal against Toulouse in the weekend.

The French striker is likened to Thierry Henry and has drawn interest from the likes of Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea. He is playing a massively important role for Monaco this season as he scored an impressive 24 goals for the club this season making him the most exciting young talent in Europe at the moment.

The most impressive stat is that he has managed to score 5 goals in Champions League football aggregating an unbelievable 71 min per goal so far this season. His important contributions have ensured that Monaco are on course to win the French league while they reached semifinals and will play against Juventus in Champions League.

Despite all the brilliance on the field this season, Mbappe has played down his performances for the season but is keen to make a mark at Monaco before he leaves for a bigger club.

‘I’ve done nothing extraordinary,’ he told Repubblica.

‘Scoring 60 goals would be extraordinary, but managing 14 in Ligue 1 is not. Buffon and Totti are two legends and my parents taught me to be an educate person who should always learn from people with more experience than me.

‘I’d like to win the Ballon d’Or, the Champions League and be a regular starter for France.

‘I’d like to leave a mark with Monaco before I leave. I am only focused on this season.

‘If the mind works well then anything can happen and this amazing season of Monaco proves it.’

Despite increasing interest among clubs, it would be ideal for Mbappe to stay with Monaco and try to grow as much as possible as a big money move at such small age could instead make things difficult for the 18-year old.
