After his XXL performance at Camp Nou this week, Kylian Mbappé saw his popularity exploded on Instagram.
In the absence of Neymar and Di Maria, Kylian Mbappé was particularly expected against Barcelona, Tuesday, on the occasion of the knockout stages of the Champions League. Not enough to destabilize the boy from Bondy, who will have been the great architect of the scathing success of the Paris Saint Germain (1-4), with a hat-trick registered.

A high-level performance, worthy of the greatest, synonymous with a change of dimension for the 2018 world champion. To measure this new milestone crossed by the Parisian number 7, just take a look on social networks, which have become today one of the main indicators of the reputation of football players.
4th most followed player in the world on Instagram
Sixth most followed footballer in the world on Instagram before the start of this round of 16 first leg, Mbappé is now the fourth player with the most subscribers on this network, with 47.2 million fans. The former Monegasque thus overtakes the Brazilian Marcelo and the Colombian James Rodriguez. However, he still has some way to go before catching up with Neymar, Messi and Ronaldo.
