Kylian Mbappe is only in his fourth season with Paris Saint-Germain. And so far, he has already made goal-scoring history multiple times with the club.
For one, Mbappe is just coming off of a hat-trick performance against FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg. This now puts Mbappe at five goals in Champions League play so far this season.
What became a footnote in the match was the fact that Mbappe surpassed former PSG forward Pauleta for third on the club’s all-time goal-scoring list. Mbappe came into the match with 108 career goals scored for the club, which trailed Pauleta’s 109 number.

Pauleta scored 109 goals for PSG over five seasons with the club, which included a trio of 20-goal campaigns.
Mbappe sure has what it takes to become the club’s all-time leading goal-scorer, and he could remain on track to doing so if he elects to sign a new contract extension deal to prolong his stay.
