Real Madrid and France defender Raphael Varane has spoken out about PSG striker Kylian Mbappe in terms of his absentee rivalry with Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland.
“I aspire to play alongside the best players and Kylian is one of the best players in Europe,” said Varane to Marca.
“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.”
This season, Mbappe has scored 20 goals and made six assists in 25 Ligue 1 games. And Varane loves him.
“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 is one of the best,” the latter said.
