Footage Of A 9-Year-Old Kylian Mbappe Proves He Was Miles Ahead Of The Competition

Footage Of A 9-Year-Old Kylian Mbappe Proves He Was Miles Ahead Of The Competition

Kylian Mbappe's performance against Argentina on Saturday afternoon must have added at least another £100 million to his price tag.

Seriously though, the 19-year-old tore the likes of Marcos Rojo and Nicolas Otamendi to shreds as Didier Deschamps' side eventually won the game 4-3 thanks to the heroics of Mbappe and a number of his teammates.

It's hard to find superlatives for the young lad from Bondy, France, but it's clear that at the tender age of 19, he has a huge future ahead of him.

Future Ballon d'Or winner? I certainly think so.

Earlier this year, footage emerged of a nine-year-old Mbappe ruining careers on Sunday League pitches across the country, showing glimpses of what we currently see on a regular basis.

Here's an incredible compilation of Mbappe as a nine-year-old:

It emerged earlier this week that Mbappe has made the kind decision to give his national team wage a different association after every game because he doesn't feel he should earn money to represent his country.

The 2017 Golden Boy award winner is entitled to £17,000 plus bonuses for every game he plays.

But being a patron of the Preiers de Cordees association, a charity which looks to organise sports activities for children with disabilities, he doesn't deem it to be necessary and so has made the wonderful gesture, as per L'Equipe.

It's also said that Mbappe's actions have prompted other compatriots to take a leaf out of his book, namely Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti.

Take a bow, Kylian Mbappe.
