Ethan Mbappe: Make his mark at PSG or flee the nest? It's time for Kylian's little brother to start carving out his own career in the game

It's difficult to mention Ethan Mbappe without bringing up his older brother. Kylian, after all, is one of the best in the world, and will go down as an all-time great of the game. But Ethan can play, too. He may be nearly nine years his brother's junior, but he has plenty of talent in his own right.

Smaller in stature, and more of a technical midfielder, Ethan has spent time in numerous top European academies, made his PSG debut as a teenager, and seems poised for a move of his own this summer.
