Kylian Mbappe has become the all-time top scorer of PSG, with his goal against Nantes in their recent 4-2 win. The Frenchman surpassed Edinson Cavani to claim the record for himself, with the Uruguayan scoring 200 goals during his time at the club.
What’s more incredible is that Mbappe has achieved this feat only at the age of 24. In six years at the club, he has etched himself into their history. And now, he has the opportunity to extend his tally by the end of the season to a considerable extent.
Kylian Mbappe becomes PSG’s all-time top scorer with 201st goal
This season, Mbappe has scored 30 goals and provided eight assists in 30 games across all competitions. He is currently leading the Ligue 1 golden boot race with 18 goals to his name.
The Parisians are currently leading the table and are on course to win the Ligue 1 title for another season. However, they are in a difficult situation in the Champions League. This week, they will travel to Bayern Munich trailing by 1-0 on aggregate.
Kylian Mbappe came off the bench in the first leg to great effect. And now that he is fully fit, he is expected to make the starting line-up in the return leg.
With 36 goals in 66 games for the France national team, it is also just a matter of time before Mbappe becomes the all-time top goalscorer for the national team. Olivier Giroud currently holds the record with 53 goals to his name.
