'Mbappe Amazes Me!'

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has been tipped to challenge for the Ballon d'Or in the future by a 1998 FIFA World Cup winner, who believes the young forward will eventually be among the greats of football.

'It's Done, Mbappe Will Play For Real Next Season'

The 22-year-old has enjoyed an incredible 2021 so far, especially in the UEFA Champions League, in which he has scored six goals in his past three matches.

Mbappe struck a remarkable hat-trick against FC Barcelona in the first leg of their round of 16 clash, before finding the back of the net once in the reverse fixture. The forward then scored twice in the first leg of their quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich this week.

Among the many fans he already has around the world is former France and Juventus striker David Trezeguet, who was recently asked if he thinks the Real Madrid-linked superstar could one day win the Ballon d'Or.

"He is on the right track anyway," he told Le Parisien.

"He asserts himself as the rightful successor to Messi or Ronaldo. He is best placed to take their place."

Trezeguet also praised his compatriot for never shying away from performing in the biggest matches.  

"I admit, he always amazes me. Great games belong to great players," he continued.

"This is not a trivial sentence. Kylian has once again demonstrated this brilliantly. This is the mark of the greats.

"He is more motivated by these very high-level meetings. We had already seen this against Barcelona. He gives off an impression of ease. He is strong in his body and in his head.

"When he is expected, he responds. It is sometimes a little less obvious in Ligue 1, even if his statistics also speak for him."
