Kylian Mbappe tops the list of the 10 fastest footballers in the world

Mbappe has been ranked as the fastest footballer in the world according to data from French newspaper Le Figaro.

Clocking in at an impressive top speed of 36km/h, the French forward has come out ahead of well-known speedsters such as and Leroy Sane.

Inaki Williams is perhaps a surprise entrant at No 2 on the list, with the Athletic Bilbao man recording a 35.7km/h speed, coming very close to Mbappe but just losing out. 

Manchester United were looking to splash £81million on the forward last summer, however he later signed a new contract with the Spanish club instead. 

THE WORLD’S FASTEST FOOTBALLERS 

1. Kylian Mbappe – 36km/h

2. Inaki Williams – 35.7km/h

3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 35.5km/h

4. Karim Bellarabi – 35.27km/h

5. Kyle Walker – 35.21km/h

6. Leroy Sane – 35.04km/h

7. Mohamed Salah – 35km/h

8. Kingsley Coman – 35km/h

9. Alvaro Odriozola – 34.99km/h

10. Nacho Fernandez – 34.62km/h

Overall, it would be a very closely run race between the top players, with eight of them registering speeds of over 35km/h. 

Arsenal ace Aubameyang is right behind Inaki at 35.5km/h. Real Madrid have ramped up their chase of the striker, with boss Zinedine Zidane labelling him as a ‘great priority’ after he reportedly asked to leave the London club.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Karim Bellarabi is next on the list at 35.27km/h, just pipping Manchester City’s Kyle Walker at 35.21km/h.
