“My son Kylian is more than passionate about football– I think he’s crazy. He almost puts me off even thou i see myself as a football coach. He’s always into it 24/7. Kylian watches everything. He can watch four or five matches in a row.”

Growing up in the Paris suburbs which was once ravaged by violence and rioting did not deter him. Everything about his future was well managed by his family.

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts Rising to Fame

After his father’s outburst, which concluded with the ominous warning that they would look for a transfer in the January window if things did not change, the Monaco manager, Leonardo Jadim decided to start him against Montpellier. Mbappe was heavily involved in the 6-2 rout of Montpellier and has not looked back.

He scored his first professional hat-trick in December’s 7-0 League Cup victory over Rennes, his second in February’s 5-0 trouncing of Metz and celebrated his first Champions League start by carving through the heart of Manchester City’s defense to score his first goal in the competition and put his side 2-1 up.

This was when Mbappé’s exploits as a teenager soon caught the attention of world media.

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts Turning Down Offers

At the age of 15, when students leave Clairefontaine after two years to enter the professional club system, Mbappé turned down every other Ligue 1 side, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern Munich to join Monaco and moved to the principality to continue his education.

And yet, though Wilfried Mbappé had been keen for his son to stay with Monaco provided he would be given sufficient playing time, by October, two months after Monaco turned down a £40m bid from Manchester City, Kylian had not started a match and his father was livid, as he told L’Equipe:

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts Breaking Records

He made his debut for Monaco aged just 16 years and 347 days, beating the record set by Henry, who was 17 years and 14 days when he first turned out for the club more than 20 years ago.

Although, Henry have said it wasn’t fair to call Mbappe ‘the new Thierry Henry‘. But no one has heeded his warning … apart from those who prefer to call him ‘the new Neymar’. He is the Youngest debitan for Monaco. Mbappe has also broken the record in Europe in terms of minutes per goal or assist – ahead of even Lionel Messi.

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts Meeting Thierry Henry

At this time, Thierry Henry never knew he was taking a shot with a 5 year boy who would rival him by breaking two of his records.

According to Henry, I’ve met once when he was a kid. Today, he’s a nice lad with a good head on his shoulders. He is very respectful and quite quiet. He is determined and never gives up. He is the talk of the town and has so much talent. He has skills, goals, assists. He can do what he wants with the ball.”

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts Meeting Christiano Ronaldo

The picture below shows Cristiano Ronaldo’s arm draped around Kylian Mbappe’s shoulder at Real’s training base at Valdebebas. Here he was only 13. His opportunity to meet C Ronaldo came after an invitation by Zinedine Zidane.

Mbappe, in the photo, is plainly a boy. It’s a photo to emphasise his tender years. Ronaldo on the other hand looks just the same. Mbappe has since blossomed into a fine young man in such a short space of time.

To be in a picture with Ronaldo was no doubt a thrill for a kid like Mbappe. Today, he had made his own way in the world now and probably seen as a threat by Ronaldo. Today, he is a threat to his stature and his Ballon d’Or.

Likewise, Paulo Dybala has openly described Lionel Messi as his “idol”. He grew up emulating the Barcelona superstar. In the 2016/2017 champions League, Dybala shoved him out of the Knockout stage. Time ticks by. It’s sad to think about but the day will come when Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are no longer playing. They’ll be gone and we’ll only have memories.

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts What others say about him

“Mbappé is a very good player. Now he is being compared with Thierry Henry and he plays like him. He is young but if he continues to improve like this, he will play for the national team for sure.” Bacary Sagna.

“He is not exactly Thierry Henry but it is true that he has similar qualities and the future and talent is similar. The potential is similar, after that if he has the same level of motivation, desire and intelligence that Thierry has, and the next two to three years will tell us that, then he can be very promising.”  Arsène Wenger.

“He is 18 years old and what he does is amazing. Right from the start, we saw and we knew he was a slightly different player, in his way of touching the ball for example. He has a game that has something special. On top of that, he works a lot. I hope that he will continue to help us win titles.” Bernardo Silva.

“He has talent, it is undeniable. He has real potential and We bet he will be in Russia.” LifeBogger.”

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts The Bromance

The Monaco forward was not even born when Gianluigi Buffon, the Juventus goalkeeper, was named in Italy’s squad for the 1998 World Cup in France.

And for Mbappe, that is one of a number of stats he can reflect on with pride when he takes stock of Monaco’s run to the last four. His tally of six Champions League goals in the 2016/2017 season means he has scored the same number of goals in the competition before 19 as Raul.

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts Aging Quickly

Upon careful observation, one would notice premature aging on the face which doesn’t correspond to his current age.

Again, wrinkles found in his eyes. This does complements his maturity and intelligence.

Kylian Mbappe Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts No Luxury

As at time of writing,  Kylian still lives in the Monaco training hostel. His plan is to lay low and grounded so that fame doesnt get to his head. When his family is around, he leaves the domitary to stay with his mum, father and little brother

Kylian still has his room at the training center. He would, however, have the means to afford a villa with an accompanying swimming pool. But that’s not his thing. He has seen the unnecessary excesses of certain teammates who had lost their way. To protect him, I convinced him to stay in the (academy) center. However in the nearest future, he hopes to get a place of his own. Says his father.
