Mbappe appears to have weighed in on the GOAT debate between Ronaldo and Messi by dropping a very subtle hint.

Kylian Mbappe may have dropped an indirect hint on social media implying he views Cristiano Ronaldo as his GOAT pick over Lionel Messi.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has had the rare privilege of having faced Ronaldo and Messi at both club and international level. The experience has given him a rare insight into the duo, and it seems he may have settled on a GOAT.

Mbappe has posted a tribute to Ronaldo and Messi in each of their last meetings on Instagram, but with one key difference.

In the message Mbappe posted about Ronaldo after France and Portugal drew 0-0 in October, he included a goat emoji (🐐) and the word ‘idol’.

Below is the full Ronaldo post.

But while the 22-year-old posted a gracious tribute to Messi after facing him in the Champions League this week, the Barcelona captain got no goat emoji.

Below is the full Messi post.
