Kylian Mbappe scored after just three minutes against Borussia Dortmund in AS Monaco’s 3-1 win which sees them quality for the UEFA Champions League semi-final.
Mbappe has now scored in all four of AS Monaco’s UEFA Champions League knockout games this season and in doing so has become the first player ever to do that, at the ripe old age of 19.
What a player Mbappe is. With his current form, and if Monaco make the final, there is every chance he could score in every knockout round including the final – what a historical achievement that would be.
As for Manchester United fans, well they were very impressed by Mbappe’s performances and why wouldn’t they be?
Just seeing Monaco are winning and Mbappe has scored. Water is wet ????

If Mbappé goes for anything over £50m up-front, then the world has gone crazy. Looks amazing but that's absurd.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Man United have been linked with a move for Mbappe in the summer as Jose Mourinho will no doubt be looking to sign a new striker.
Judging from how Mbappe is continuing to improve towards the business end of the season, I imagine his price tag will only continue to rise. Next up is a charge for the Ligue One title plus a Champions League semi-final and I can’t wait to see Mbappe plays in those games.
