In the 2023-2024 season, Kylian Mbappe has emerged as the undisputed top scorer in the European football landscape, according to the recently shared rankings by the portal Parisinos.net. With 28 goals in 26 games for PSG, the French forward has left an imposing mark in the top 5 leagues, as well as in national and international cup competitions.
The current top scorers' chart stands as follows:
1. Kylian Mbappe (PSG) – 28 goals in 26 games
2. Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) – 26 goals in 24 games
3. Lautaro Martinez (Inter) – 21 goals in 27 games
4. Erling Haaland (Manchester City) – 19 goals in 22 games
5. Alvaro Morata (Atletico Madrid) – 19 goals in 28 games
The striking aspect of this list is the absence of players from Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in the Top 5 scorers. This situation raises the intriguing question of whether we are witnessing the beginning of a new era in football, where the world's top talents are no longer necessarily found in Spain, breaking the trend of the last decade.
Mbappe's brilliant performance sparks a debate about his candidacy for the Ballon d'Or at the end of the season. His impressive numbers and ability to lead the goal-scoring chart in different competitions lend weight to the possibility of the French forward being recognized as the world's best player.
The competition is fierce, with standout players like Harry Kane, Lautaro Martinez, Erling Haaland, and Alvaro Morata, but Mbappe's consistency and performance could be decisive in the race for the prestigious individual award. PSG's fate in the Champions League will be a determining factor.
