'Mbappe Is From Another Planet'

Despite being only 18 years old, Paris Saint-Germain starlet Kylian Mbappe is from "another planet" and is yet to reach his full potential, according to a former France international.

The teenager has been in sensational form of the Ligue 1 giants since his loan move from Monaco, and is expected to make his move permanent at a price of €145 million (R2.31 billion) next season.

Marcel Desailly, a 1998 FIFA World Cup winner, is impressed with his young countryman and thinks he will only go from strength to strength as he continues his development.

"Even at his young age, he doesn't have to prove how exceptional a player he is," the former AC Milan and Chelsea star told Omnisport.

"The first thing he will have to prove is that he can get into the national team and be its leader. And that's what matters before thinking he could be a great player during the World Cup.

"It is the same for Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo or (Lionel) Messi, even (Luis) Suarez. They already have a vital status.

"Mbappe doesn't have one yet. He just arrived. He's one up-and-coming player with great potential.

"Neymar has a status, and we hope he can become this fantastic player of this new generation. He has a status already, but Mbappe doesn't.

"He has, however, amazing potential. It's magical, coming from nowhere. He's from another planet."
