Real Madrid and France defender Raphael Varane has spoken out about PSG striker Kylian Mbappe.
“He is one of the best,” said Varane to Marca.
“Mbappe is still young but has already made incredible progress and continues to evolve. He is becoming a more and more accomplished player and remains a great striker,” he said.
Mbappe has scored 20 goals and made six assists in 25 Ligue 1 games this season.
Talking about Mbappe in relation to his absentee rivalry with Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland, Varane said: “I aspire to play alongside the best players and Kylian is one of the best players in Europe.”
“I think Messi and Ronaldo are outstanding examples. And they already have a special place in football history. But I think Kylian has the qualities to leave a mark among his generation and make football history.”
