There’s not much doubt that 2017 belonged to Kylian Mbappé. At the start of last year, no-one had heard of the teenage forward.
But, by the end of it, he was the star man having shone for Monaco in their Ligue 1 title win and sealed a loan move to home-town club Paris Saint-Germain. With a £166million deal agreed for this summer, he will become the world’s second-most expensive player after team-mate Neymar.
So who will be the next breakout star?
