Kylian Mbappe is one of the most important players in the world. Since his time at Monaco, the player showed that he was a different player and everything pointed to him making history in the coming years. During the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the Frenchman showed that he could live up to the greats, winning the World Cup at just 19 years of age. Certainly, this has not been repeated for some time 

With that said, after France's victory, it seemed that Mbappe would spend a couple of seasons at PSG and then decide to migrate to other more relevant teams in Europe. Nevertheless, this has not happened in the end, which has raised a lot of criticism. It is worth mentioning that probably the great power of world football at the moment is France, because they have reached two World Cup finals in a row

Didier Deschamps' side have broken any curse, including the one that said no team that had won the World Cup four years earlier would make it out of the group stage. However, this turned out to be pure superstition. Despite losing to Lionel Messi's Argentina, the 24-year-old Frenchman became one of the standout players in the final and the entire World Cup in Qatar

Now, the Frenchman wants to achieve a new record and aims to surpass Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo with the years of his career still ahead of him. 

The record Kylian Mbappe wants to beat

After France's thrashing win against Gibraltar by 14-0 in the Euro Qualifiers, Mbappe scored a hat trick and reached 300 goals as a professional. In view of this, the player acknowledged that it is a great moment but that it still does not compare to the records of other players, making clear reference to Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. These were his words to TF1
