ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Paris Saint-Germain French striker Kylian Mbappe is one happy and proud dude these days.
After helping PSG beat fourth-tier Vannes 4-0 on Monday with his hat trick, Mbappe, 23 is now the team’s all-time 3rd leading scorer.
Since he became part of PSG, Mbappe already scored 150 goals which are just six goals behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the player in second place on the list.
Ibrahimovic scored 156 goals in 180 games during his stint in Paris, which means Mbappe will almost certainly overtake the Swede’s total before the end of the season.
Edinson Cavani remains PSG’s all-time top goalscorer with 200 goals in 301 games before leaving to join Manchester United, but if Mbappe maintains his current prolific scoring rate — scoring six goals in his past three games, and seven of PSG’s past 10 goals in all competitions — then there’s an outside chance he could also topple his old teammate, too.
The win over Vannes is huge for PSG since it towed them into Coupe de France last 16.
Earlier, sources said PSG has rejected the €160 million ($188m) offer of La Liga team Real Madrid for Mbappe.
The Sources added that PSG is only keen to release Mbappe if Real Madrid will reportedly increase its offer to €200m ($235m).
According to reports, Mbappe’s contract at PSG expires next summer, and the 22-year-old has made it clear that, despite repeated approaches from the club, he does not intend to renew.
It earlier reported that Real Madrid made the move to acquire Mbappe after the latter rejected the five-year deal, with the option of a sixth offer of PSG.
Mbappe turned down the contract extension offer of PSG on Monday.
Aside from Real Madrid, Man United is also interested in signing Mbappe.
