Mbappe more valuable than Ronaldo and Messi: Maurinho

Jose Mourinho believes Kylian Mbappe’s age and “incredible” ability makes him more valuable than even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Paris Saint-Germain star MBAPPE has lifted the World Cup, won Ligue 1 twice, scored 55 top-flight goals and been voted fourth in the Ballon d’Or all before his 21st birthday.

And it is his youth that former Manchester United manager Mourinho views as the critical difference when comparing his worth in the transfer market to Barcelona captain Messi, 31, and Juventus talisman Ronaldo, 34.

“For a player like Mbappe, when you speak about the future, you don’t need to say what he’s going to be like in five years’ time, in 10 years’ time,” Mourinho told.

“Just focus on now. He’s absolutely incredible.

“I think going by his age and [and considering] the age of Cristiano, of Messi, [both] over 30, Neymar is 27, when you go to the market level and age is also a factor, I think he’s the most valuable player in the world.”
