Mbappe is the present, future - Ronaldo

Juventus star player, Cristiano Ronaldo has described Kylian Mbappe as the present and future when it comes to football.

Mbappe moved to Paris Saint-Germain for £130m plus add ons from Monaco where he had a stunning spell.

Since joining PSG, the French International has won back-to-back Ligue 1 titles and has scored 84 goals in 116 performances.

"Mbappe is the future and the present," Ronaldo said, as per Marca.

"He's a fantastic player, very fast, and he will be the future."

Mbappe has in recent times spoken of both Ronaldo and Messi. He stated that it is too late to replicate Messi's career.

"It's too late for me to carve out a career like Messi's, I would have had to stay at Monaco," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport .

"Without taking anything away from Messi, now I have to draw on Cristiano's career for inspiration.

"If you're French, obviously you would have grown up with [Zinedine] Zidane as your idol. After that, it was Cristiano, who I have been fortunate enough to have faced as an opponent, at club level, and with the national team."
