It seems that with every passing week, Monaco star Kylian Mbappe is making the headlines and the youngster has been at it again.

Mbappe has risen to prominence this season as the star of a hugely exciting and entertaining Monaco side that are battling for the Ligue 1 title in France and have made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League.


They have gained plaudits for their refreshing approach and attacking style in which they take games to teams, and have earned praise for their complete lack of fear against bigger teams.

Mbappe has arguably been the standout player for Leonardo Jardim throughout the campaign, and his goals at such a young age have got everybody talking.

The Frenchman got on the scoresheet again this weekend against Toulouse to help his side to a 3-1 win, and his goal actually helped him make history.

Mbappe is the youngest player born in the 21st century to have reached 15 career league goals, aged just 18-years-and-129-days-old.

It was his 22nd of the season in 35 appearances across all competitions and is sure to do little to quash speculation that he will be leaving at the end of the season to go to one of the biggest clubs in the world.

The teen has been linked with a number of clubs as the season has gone on, including Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid and Barcelona.  ​
