Kylian Mbappe’s whirlwind rise to the top of world football has earned him an appearance on the cover of Time magazine.

Mbappe, who joined Paris Saint-Germain from Ligue 1 rivals Monaco for a staggering £166million, has become one of the top stars in football and won the World Cup with France this summer at just the tender age of 19.

The French star has been making headlines across Europe for years now and is being tipped to soon topple Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player in world football.

And with his stock continuing to skyrocket, Mbappe has earned an appearance on the cover of Time magazine’s international edition, which will appear on Friday. 

Mbappe has sat down with Time to discuss his journey to the top, admitting he has fulfilled his dreams – but it has come at a price.

The teenager said: ‘My life has been totally turned upside down. I am happy, and I am living the life I always dreamed of.

‘I think I might have missed out on something. I did not have the moments of so-called normal people during adolescence, like going out with friends, enjoying good times.’
