SPORTS | Better than Henry! Man Utd and Arsenal target Mbappe posts best Ligue 1 numbers in 30 years

Kylian Mbappe is a wanted man, and interest in his services is likely to mount amid the posting of figures that even the legendary Thierry Henry could not match.

Having burst onto the scene at Monaco in some style this season, the teenager was among the goals again in a 3-1 victory over Caen on Sunday.

His deadly double took him onto 13 Ligue 1 efforts for the season, with that return helping to keep his side in title contention. His efforts have also set a 30-year high in the French top-flight, with the 18-year-old bettering the achievements of some illustrious figures that have gone before him.

Mbappe is the youngest player to score 13 goals in Ligue 1 for 30 years (18 yo & 3 m), ahead of…Thierry Henry (19 yo & 3 m).
