PSG star Mbappe features on Time's cover
Mbappe became the youngest French goalscorer in World Cup history when he struck in a 1-0 win over Peru in the group stages
Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe's rapid rise to global fame has earned the teenaged World Cup winner an appearance on the cover of Time magazine's international edition. Time said Mbappe, 19, was a global superstar who, "is the future of football."
Mbappe made headlines in September 2017 when he moved from Ligue 1 side Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain for a staggering 180 million euros ($207 million), a deal that saw the then 18-year-old player handed a reported monthly salary of 1.5m euros ($1.8m).
But Mbappe's stock skyrocketed during this year's World Cup, where a series of phenomenal displays drew compliments from Brazil legend Pele on his way to helping France end their 20-year wait to win another World Cup trophy. Mbappe became the youngest French goalscorer in World Cup history when he struck in a 1-0 win over Peru in the group stages.
