Mbappé and a New Generation Ready to Challenge the World

As Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo approach the end of their illustrious careers, a new generation of football stars is emerging, with French sensation Kylian Mbappé at the forefront.

The World Cup-winning French star is considered one of the ready talents poised for significant success on the global stage. With Messi and Ronaldo's careers winding down, the new generation is expected to compete for the coveted title of the world's best player.


Mbappé, a 24-year-old forward, is anticipated to clinch the Ballon d'Or at some point, given his remarkable achievements. Former Brazilian legend and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star Ronaldinho believes Mbappé has the potential to win the prestigious award with his current team. Ronaldinho, who won the Ballon d'Or in 2005, expressed to French news agency AFP, "A great player like him can win the Ballon d'Or for any team, but as a Paris Saint-Germain fan, I would like him to achieve that with Paris."


In the 2023 Ballon d'Or voting, Mbappé finished third behind Argentina's Messi and Manchester City's Erling Haaland. He played a crucial role in leading France to victory in the 2022 World Cup, scoring a hat-trick in the thrilling final. Mbappé is also PSG's all-time leading scorer with 230 goals in the French league.


Mbappé is set to become a free agent in the summer of 2024, and clubs like Real Madrid and Liverpool are among the expected suitors for his transfer. The young French star's future is eagerly anticipated as he continues to make a significant impact on the global football stage.
