Kylian Mbappe admits that his life has been turned upside down, but is happy living the dream

The teenage sensation is already a global superstar with the likes of France legend David Trezeguet tipping Mbappe to succeed Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the world’s best player.

The 19-year-old striker has already been in the headlines across Europe for years and was the most expensive signing of the recent summer transfer window at €180m, when PSG made him a permanent member of the squad.

With his profile currently at an all-time high, Mbappe has made the cover of this Friday’s edition of Time magazine‘s international edition.

In the interview, Mbappe talks about how he became a superstar and confessed that all of his dreams are already coming true.

“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.”

Mbappe is expected to lead France’s attack in tonight’s game against Iceland in Guingamp with kick-off set to begin at 21:00 (CEST).
