The European champions have bolstered their squad by acquiring a global superstar who has just completed his most prolific scoring season with PSG, netting 44 goals and leading the French league in scoring for the past six seasons.

Kylian Mbappé (born in Paris, France on December 20, 1998) has officially joined Real Madrid. At just 25 years old, he has already established himself as an international star.

This past season, he scored 44 goals for Paris Saint-Germain and finished as the top scorer in the French league for the sixth consecutive time with 27 goals.

Real Madrid has strengthened its lineup with a premier striker who also captains the French national team. Mbappé was instrumental in France's 2018 World Cup victory and their 2021 Nations League win, scoring the decisive goal in the latter.

During the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he earned the Golden Boot by scoring 8 goals and became the highest scorer in World Cup finals history with 4 goals after his hat-trick in the final.

Mbappé is the all-time leading scorer for Paris Saint-Germain, with 256 goals. This season, he has secured the league title, the French Cup, and the French Super Cup.

Over his seven-year tenure with the French club, he has accumulated 17 trophies, including six league titles, four French Cups, five French Super Cups, and two League Cups.

Honors and Achievements

Individually, Mbappé has been named to the FIFA FIFPro World 11 four times (2018, 2019, 2022, and 2023) and has also been included in the UEFA Champions League team of the season on four occasions (2016/17, 2019/20, 2020/21, and 2021/22).

He won the Golden Boy award in 2017 for being the best player under 21 and has been recognized as the best player in the French championship by the UNFP in 2019, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024.

Early Career

Before joining PSG, Mbappé began his career at Monaco. He joined their youth system in 2013, made his first-team debut at 16, and scored his first goal at 17.

He won his first French league title in the 2016/17 season and debuted in the Champions League at 17 against Bayer Leverkusen, scoring his first goal in the competition on February 21, 2017, against Manchester City, netting six goals in that edition.

He also showcased his talent early on with the French national team and was a key player in France's U19 European Championship win in 2016.
