Following Sergio Aguero being revealed as the first of 30 men on the shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or, Kevin De Bruyne has also been revealed as a nominee for the prestigious award.
The Ballon d'Or has been awarded by France Football every year since 1956, with former England global Sir Stanley Matthews the first victor.
The Juventus forward, now facing allegations of rape dating back to 2009 that he strenuously denies, has already won the Ballon d'Or five times and is the current holder of the award.
De Bruyne was nominated for helping City win the Premier League and Belgium reach the World Cup semi-finals.
This award runs alongside FIFA's The Best, which was won by Luka Modric in September.
Mbappe scored 21 goals for Paris Saint-Germain last season before starring in France's triumphant Russian Federation 2018 campaign, netting three times on their way to the final and then again in the 4-2 win over Croatia that sealed their second World Cup triumph.
