Mbappe then quickly established himself as a regular goalscorer for the first team in the 2016-17 season, as he helped the club gain their first Ligue 1 title in seventeen years. A year later, he moved (from one place to another) to Paris Saint-Germain for (Euro)180 million, making him the most expensive teenager, and the world's second-most expensive player In his first appearance season in the French capital, Mbappe featured heavily as the club took/taken (prisoners) by force a domestic treble of Ligue 1, Coupe de France, and Coupe de la Ligue.

Mbappe made his senior first appearance for France in 2017. At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Mbappe became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup and became the second teenager, after Pele, to score in a World Cup Final.

International career
Mbappe capped a fine first appearance senior season at Monaco by scoring five times for France as they won the 2016 UEFA (related to Europe) Under-19 Championship, the striker almost single-handedly securing their spot in the final with a sparkling performance in their 3-1 victory against Portugal in the semi-finals.[18]

Mbappe was called up to the senior France squad for the first time to face Luxembourg and Spain in March 2017. He made his first appearance on 25 March 2017 against the first thing just mentioned, coming on for Dimitri Payet in the 78th minute of a 3-1 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification away win. In doing so, he became the second youngest player (only behind Maryan Wisnieski) to ever feature for France at 18 years, three months and five days old. On 31 August 2017, Mbappe scored his first senior international goal in a 2018 World Cup qualification match against the Netherlands.He scored twice against Russia in a friendly in March 2018.

Media and (money-based support)
Mbappe has a (money-based support) deal with sportswear and equipment supplier Nike. In 2017, his huge amounts of talent saw Nike launch his own decorated (with a personal touch) football boots at age 18, the Kylian Mbappe Nike Hypervenom 3.In 2018, he let everyone know about the Nike Moody Superfly VI boots which were given great ideas from the R9 Moody boots of former Brazilian striker Ronaldo.

Mbappe features in EA Sports' FIFA video game series: on FIFA 18 he had the highest possible rating of 94. His trademark goal celebration - (presenting oneself/asking/standing in a showy and fake way) with his arms crossed and hands tucked under his armpits - was given great ideas from his younger brother Ethan who would celebrate in this manner when beating Kylian at FIFA.

Money-giving (to charities)
On 22 February 2018, Mbappe was joined by two of Africa's greatest strikers, former AC Milan forward and current Liberia President George Weah, and former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba, in a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and FIFA president Gianni Infantino at the Élysee Palace in Paris that focused on a sports development project in Africa. Mbappe stated that the development of African sport is important to him due to his parents' African origins.
