One could argue that this was the most complete season by Mbappe in his Ligue 1 career. The French forward took on responsibilities in playing as both a wide winger and center-forward throughout the campaign. He also showed his versatility as a goal contributor with multiple key goals scored and impressive goal-scoring chances created for teammates.
Heading into the next season, Mbappe will be among the top favorites to finish the campaign with the most goal involvements among players in Europe’s top five leagues, especially if he elects to stay on with PSG.
