Kylian Mbappe's Rise On FIFA Is Next Level

At the start of FIFA 17 Kylian Mbappe was an unknown quantity and that was reflected in the silver 71-rated left winger card he received.

He had fairly decent stats for such a low-rated player, boasting 81 pace and 74 dribbling.

On Career Mode, he was a must-have for anyone wanting a high-quality youngster to lead their attack for years to come thanks to his incredible potential rating of 87.

97 acceleration, 96 ball control, 91 dribbling, 88 crossing, 84 finishing, 89 long shots were his set of potential states by the age of 25.

Then, following his sublime 24-goal season for Monaco last season, Mbappe then moved up to 83 by the time FIFA 18 came around and he was a Paris Saint-Germain player.

87 was his basic rating on FIFA 19 but thanks to a public vote in the FIFA community, Mbappe now has an absolute monster Team of the Year card that will do some serious damage.

According to Fut Head, Mbappe's card is going for 4.25 million coins on PlayStation 4 and it's easy to see why he's proving so costly.

The 20-year old's overall rating has climbed ten marks from 87 to 97, while he's got five star skill moves, 90 physical, 92 passing, 96 shooting and 97 dribbling.

Already the fastest player on the game, Mbappe's spicy upgrade comes with an insane 99 pace rating that will cause controllers aplenty to be broken.

The chances of packing his latest card are very slim but if you do manage to be so fortunate, then you really have struck gold.

Mbappe is now comfortably one of the most in-demand players on FIFA and it wouldn't be a surprise if the World Cup winner becomes cover star on the game in the near future.
