David Beckham says playing with Kylian Mbappé “would have been a dream” after the Paris Saint-Germain superstar scored his 100th goal for the club.
The 21-year-old, who joined PSG from national rivals Monaco in August 2017, reached the milestone with an overtime effort against Montpellier on Saturday.
The strike of the century occurred in Mbappé’s match 137 and more milestones will surely follow for the World Cup winner.

The former England captain recorded two assists in six chances created in his 10 Ligue 1 games (311 minutes played), but Mbappé could have improved his own stats as well.
“I would have loved to remain a player now, because playing with a forward like Kylian would have been a dream for me,” Inter Miami owner Beckham told Telefoot.
100 goals for PSG.
An incredible sense of justice.
A big thank you to all my teammates, the club, my representatives and congratulations to the fans for their support.
