The 18-year-old striker seemingly has the world at his feet, but it all began in humble fashion at a small club in the Paris suburbs

Kylian Mbappe is perhaps Europe's most-coveted player. But like most footballers, he had to work his way up from humble beginnings. 

The 18-year-old Monaco striker took Europe by storm this season, scoring 26 goals in all competitions in his first full season at the senior club level.

Mbappe's exploits have led to reported bids well north of €100 million from some of Europe's biggest clubs, making him likely to one day – perhaps soon – be the world's most expensive footballer. 

For Mbappe, it's been a lightning-quick rise that all started in the Paris suburb of Bondy. 

Take a look at the brief documentary above to see Mbappe's roots, including interviews with his father and his former youth coach.
