Mbappe has been talked about as the next big thing in football after Messi and Ronaldo, who have been rivals for over 10 years.
Between them, they have won 12 Ballon d’Ors and many other individual and team awards. Mbappe, on the other hand, has been a football star since he made his debut at age 17.
The French star turned down a move to Real Madrid, which holds the record for most Champions League wins, earlier this summer. Now, he wants to win his first Ballon d’Or. The 23-year-old sent Messi and Ronaldo a strong message when he talked to the New York Times.
I think the Ballon d’Or is coming my way.
I say all the time that I dream about everything. I can do anything. So, yes, it is a new generation, as you say. And Ronaldo, Messi — you’re going to stop. We have to find someone else, someone new.
Mbappe’s thoughts are backed up by the fact that Messi and Ronaldo’s careers have turned around. Messi seems to have a smaller role at PSG than he did at Barcelona, where he played with Mbappe.
Under Erik ten Hag, Ronaldo has only started one game, and he has yet to score in any competition this season. He also won’t be playing in the Champions League, which will make it much harder for him to win another Ballon d’Or.
Mbappe has said that he won’t rule out a move to Real Madrid Sports Brief said earlier that Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé hasn’t ruled out joining Real Madrid, even though he turned down the Spanish giants earlier this summer to stay with the French team.
Mbappé was rumored to be going to Real Madrid in the summer, but he ended up signing a lucrative three-year deal with PSG instead.
The Frenchman’s decision to stay with the French champions upset a lot of people in Madrid. The current European champions felt that the player had misled them about his plans to join the club and that they had wasted a lot of time trying to sign him.
