“Kylian is a different player, a beast that’s very strong in one-on-ones”, as per an interview with TUDN, reported via Marca.
“He bursts into space, he’s very fast and scores a lot of goals.
“He’s a very complete player and has already proved it for years, and in the coming years he will be among the best, for sure.”
Messi was speaking during international duty with Argentina, as La Albiceleste warm up for the 2022 World Cup with friendlies against Honduras and Jamaica this month.
Mbappe is still constantly linked with a move to the Spanish capital despite signing an extension last summer.
