Desc Paris-born forward Kylian Mbappe was the Ligue 1’s top scorer in 2018-19. Part of an exciting young Monaco side which would conquer Ligue 1 and reach the Champions League semi-finals, it would not be long before European football’s big boys would begin to circle. A move to Paris Saint-Germain, initially on loan before a €180m permanent move would deliver further success, Mbappe scoring prolifically and winning back-to-back Ligue 1 titles, being named as the division’s Player of the Year last season after scoring 33 goals in just 29 league appearances

[Kylian Mbappe speaks about a comparison Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger made about him] It’s really incredible to be compared to a player like ‘King Pele’, who is the King of Football. But what I must think about is working hard and following my own pathway and not thinking about people who compare you to other players

[Kylian Mbappe tells about his football idol Zinedine Zidane] At that time, I wasn’t switched on, I was a little bit in my own world, which is why I wanted to have the same haircut as him. Because when you love a player, you want to do everything like him. If he eats spinach, a kid is going to eat spinach even if he doesn’t like them. I wanted to do everything like him, and as I didn’t know what baldness was, I asked the hairdresser to cut a round bit out of my hair, he thought I was mad

[Kylian Mbappe reveals why he chose PSG over Real Madrid this summer] [I turned down Real Madrid] because PSG is the team of my city. [Joining Real] would have been like a Real Madrid-supporting kid from Madrid having the chance to play for his team and deciding to go somewhere else, to another country. I wanted to play for PSG and I am very happy right now about how things are going. There were a lot of rumours about the transfers and it’s true that we spoke, but I think that’s now in the past for me and for Real Madrid. I now play for PSG and I will defend these colours 100 per cent

[Kylian Mbappe revealed his anticipation of making World Cup debut in Russia] Of course, yes, I’m thinking about it. I’ve never played in one before so I’m already thinking about it. At the same time, I know that the most important thing at this time is my club. I’ve got so many objectives with my club that I’m thinking about the World Cup, but I can’t think about it every day because I’ve got PSG. But I admit that I’m looking forward to the World Cup and I’m impatient for it

I have learned that the biggest stars and the greatest players are the most humble ones, the ones who respect people the most. There are three criteria: respect, humility and lucidity. My mother has always told me that to become a great football player, you must be before all a great man

[Kylian Mbappe on future ambitions] I still have a lot of things to do. I want to accomplish everything. With France, I still have the European Championship to win. I would also, why not, like to compete in the Olympics. Then, with PSG, we all know what [the Champions League] is missing there

[Kylian Mbappe talks about maintaining a sense of humour in football] There is no bad time to laugh. I always joke, even five minutes before a game. It’s not bad to stay a little immature. There is so much pressure in football that a little bit of ‘joie de vivre’, a little bit of fun doesn’t hurt in this environment

[Kylian Mbappe on France head coach Didier Deschamps] I think in particular that he selected me while I was not playing anymore - for a player, you don’t know how much it means. It’s a signal … a very strong signal! It is a mark of confidence that is worth all the money in the world. I know the coach trusts and believes in me. And once he did that, I felt I could die for him on the pitch ever since. If he told me to play in goal, I would

[Kylian Mbappe surprises attendees at the Ligue 1 awards ceremony in May when he admitted his future may not be at the Parc des Princes] I come to a turning point in my career. I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is maybe the moment to have more responsibility. I hope that can perhaps be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project

[Kylian Mbappe discusses his delight at having a French legend as national team coach] Didier Deschamp’s been fortunate enough and talented enough to win it as a player and a coach, which is a historic achievement. It was fantastic for me to have him as a role model. I love working with people whose names have gone down in history
