Kylian Mbappé is probably the best young player in the world. However, the next step for the 22-year-old is to take over the mantel for football’s best player. Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, whichever someone falls on that debate, currently holds the title.
Nonetheless, both players are in their mid-30’s, it’s only a matter of time before father time catches up, and their play takes a dip. That’s when Mbappé, who if he continues his current form, can assume the role of football’s best player.
In an interview with Le Parisien, former PSG forward Carlos Bianchi spoke about when he sees Mbappé taking that role of football’s best player.
“If he doesn’t hurt himself, he will be the best in two or three years. He is much more than a goalscorer,” Bianchi said.
Real Madrid is the loudest of the suitors looking to convince the PSG forward to head to Spain; the former Argentine forward had to answer the million-dollar question over Mbappé’s future and whether the France international should remain in the French capital or seek greener pastures.
“I can’t put myself in his shoes. I was a docile player. I finished three times as top scorer in the French Championship, and I never messed up,” Bianchi said. “I had a contract. The first time, in Reims, Real Madrid came to pick me up in 1973-1974. Real Madrid anyway! I stayed in Reims. Mbappé is 22 years old and is already mature; only he knows that.”
