Mbappe Far Ahead Of Messi & Ronaldo At His Age

France international Kylian Mbappe has been likened to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but the statistics suggest that he is already far ahead of the Argentine and Portuguese at his age.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Mbappe's numbers compared to Messi at Ronaldo at 19 years old!

Messi and Ronaldo have dominated football over the past 10 years, winning five Ballons d'Or each and countless club trophies.

While it is difficult to imagine anybody surpassing their remarkable achievements, statistics show that Paris Saint-Germain's Mbappe is on course to do just that.

In terms of trophies, Mbappe has already won the FIFA World Cup, silverware Messi and Ronaldo still might dream of lifting, and when it comes to goals, the Frenchman is even further ahead.

At 19 years old, Messi had scored just 25 club goals for FC Barcelona, while Ronaldo had struck just 17 times for Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United. Mbappe, on the other hand, has already hit the back of the net 52 times at club level.

He scored 10 of those goals in the UEFA Champions League, compared to Messi's two goals when he was a teenager, and Ronaldo's zero.

According to Marca, the forward is also further ahead of his counterparts in terms of goals at international level. While Messi had just four goals to his name at 19 and Ronaldo seven, Mbappe has already scored nine times for his country.
