"Mbappe is rated to be the Biggest Star ahead of Neymar", Chiellini

Juventus defender Chiellini that Mbappe is better overall than his partner Neymar.

●He remembers asking 'what planet Kylian was from' after seeing him play for the first time.

● Giorgio bids the 21-year-old to become the next big thing in football.

In his biography, Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini shared his thoughts on Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The Italian stalwart backs the latter to take over when Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are done.

"Who's destined to be the next world star and collector of Ballon d'Or when Cristiano and Messi stop playing? It's the Frenchman Kylian Mbappe, a truly unique player!"

" At the end of the first half, I asked Fabio Paratici: "who is he? Which planet is he from?" Fabio replied: "Yes I know. We've known him for some time"....An unstoppable striker, he was just 18 years old.

We would face him in Europe that season in the semi-finals. Now he's 21 and already a world champion. Pace, technique, instinct......he's not lacking in anything.

"He's a player who makes an impression, priceless masterpiece. I also think Mbappe's better than Neymar, more consistent. The future is all his."

So far this season, Mbappe has registered 30 goals and 17 assist in 33 matches across all competitions. The season in France is over but the youngster can still add more goals to his tally in the champions league if it returns
