Mbappe was all over the place in a one sided contest where PSG dominated Spanish giants Real Madrid in Paris.
Kylian Mbappe has clearly told his club PSG he is not signing a new contract with them to stay. His likely destination is Madrid according to many news sources.
The 23 year old, however, put behind his transfer issues to play his heart out for the Parisians. Mbappe scored the only goal of the night to give his side the advantage ahead of the return leg in Madrid.
The former Monaco striker has been the spark of PSG’s season. Mbappe welcomed Argentina superstar Lionel Messi from Barcelona earlier this season.
The Frenchman has gone on to impose himself as the club’s most important player. His all round performance for PSG against one of Europe’s best sides was absolutely terrifying.
Mbappe suitors Real Madrid will have returned home pregnant about the kind of player they are about to welcome to the capital.
The player is in the form of his life. He has scored for his PSG side in their last three outings. Last night’s goal takes his tally to 5 in seven games in the Champions League.
Mbappe outshone his teammate Messi who had a penalty opportunity to shine but missed. The Frenchman continues to be the main man for his team, scoring 12 goals in 22 games in Ligue 1.
The young striker has proved a headache for the French giants who have tried everything to have him side beyond this season.
Mbappe’s Brazilian teammate Neymar has just returned from injury but he is not the one that the club can rest their hopes on.
His individual performances are incomparable. He can’t stop running and pressing for possession. And when he has the ball, he is a danger to defences.
Mbappe’s pace on the ball and without it makes him unplayable. His speed on the ball last night was too much for Real Madrid right back Daniel Carvajal who was forced to bring him down to win a penalty for PSG.
With the Frenchman’s current form, PSG have a massive chance to get their hands on to the Champions League trophy.
