According to Goal, The 21-year-old only joined the Ligue 1 giants in 2017 before making the move permanent the following year, originally on loan from Monaco.

In a 3-1 victory on Saturday, Kylian Mbappe’s strike against Montpellier marked his century of goals for Paris Saint-Germain, putting him in some elite business.

In 2017, the 21-year-old only joined PSG, initially on loan from Monaco before officially making the move the following year and his goals came at an impressive pace.

On September 8, 2017, his first goal came against Metz, his second appearance for the club in the league.

In terms of objective return, Mbappe’s first season with PSG was steady rather than spectacular, but after his move was made permanent, he moved up a notch.

In a campaign that yielded 39 goals in 28 matches, teams in France and around Europe were put to the sword.

Following his 13-minute, four-goal burst against Lyon, Mbappe’s appetite was made evident in his interview.

“”I should have scored more goals, it’s part of the steps I have to take to get to the top,” said Mbappe. “It’s all fine as long as an attacker creates possibilities.”

Due to injury, Mbappe spent time on the sidelines in the 2019/20 season, but his target return was as impressive as the previous campaign.

In 21 matches, he returned 30 goals as he assisted his club to a third consecutive Ligue 1 title. The season was not capped off as they would have hoped, as, in the Champions League final, Bayern Munich defeated them 1-0.

Mbappe talked of doing one better in Europe, though staying domestically dominant, and he started the current season in sparkling form.

Immediately after the international break, two goals in the 3-2 loss to Monaco took him to 99 goals for PSG and brought up the century against Montpellier on 5 December.

Bringing up his century put him level with Dominique Rocheteau on the all-time goalscorers list of PSG in the equal fourth.

He’s got some way to go to equal 200 for top scorer Edinson Cavani, and 156 for Zlatan Ibrahimovic – but this season’s third-placed Pauleta on 109 will be overhauled barring injury.
