Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) superstar Kylian Mbappe, who is often considered as one of the best players in the world right now, is also often touted as the ideal replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, as the playing star of the PSG champion is akin to that of the ace Juventus footballer. The French forward cemented his reputation recently when he struck a hat-trick against Barcelona in the Champions League last week. Kylian’s consistent performances have earned him several laurels, apart from attributes such as being recently crowned the most valuable player in the world, as per a recent study.
According to a report by Klynveld Peat Marwick Goerdeler (KPMG), Mbappe has emerged as the most valuable player in the world, ahead of the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling. The PSG attacker’s value has been estimated at a massive €185 million. Interestingly, PSG paid €180 million to Monaco during his move in the summer of 2017.
Indeed, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has been in fine form for the Parc des Princes outfit. This season he has scored 21 times in 30 appearances across all competitions. The 22-year-old currently leads the way among his teammates with most goals this season.
Besides, the hat-trick against Barcelona saw the France international take his PSG goal tally to 111 goals, to become the third-highest scorer in the club’s history. He now languishes only behind the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani in the esteemed list.
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane sits a distant second with an estimated value of €125 million. The England international has 21 goals to his credit, managing the number in 33 appearances. Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling’s worth has been estimated on par with his England teammate Kane. Sterling has been one of the top performers for Pep Guardiola over the past few seasons and remains untouchable in the Man City lineup.
