  • The forward notched up a brace despite his team's defeat
  • Mbappe equalled Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's record with his goals against OGC Nice

Kylian Mbappe's wobbly preseason and lingering transfer controversies have done little to deter his blistering form of the French captain.

The Paris Saint Germain star seamlessly picked up from where he left off last season as he continues his consistency of contributing to at least one goal per game.

The forward again came up clutch for Luis Enrique's side with a brace, which was not enough to prevent the Parisian club from defeat.

Nonetheless, the brace from the forward ensured he joined Cristiano Ronaldo and compatriot Lionel Messi in an exclusive league.

The PSG captain for the evening has now maintained an active involvement in scoring or assisting in goals for PSG over 15 consecutive matches, a feat reported by SportsBible. This achievement places Mbappe in the company of players like Lionel Messi and Ronaldo.

Mbappe, who has his future far from settled, will obviously not be short of suitors if he insists on running down his current contract with extending at the French Capital.

Coach Luis Enrique, however, will hope the forward who appears immensely pivotal to his project, as reported by Marca, will hope Mbappe's transfer situation can be resolved immediately.

PSG and Mbappe will now seek a resurgence against Borussia Dortmund –an opponent who are not experiencing a better start to the season themselves when they line up for the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

Jude Bellingham aims dig at Mbappe

Sports Brief earlier reported that Jude Bellingham took a sly swipe at Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe when questioned about the Frenchman's potential move to Real Madrid.

Despite being a long-standing target for the Spanish club, Mbappe's transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium remains uncertain after his sensational U-turn, which saw him extend his PSG contract.

As his current deal with the French champions approaches expiration next summer, speculation surrounding the 24-year-old's transfer to Madrid has resurfaced.
