Michel Platini has suggested Juventus to sign Mbappe but is doubtful whether the club could afford him.

If there’s one player who can imitate the heights of success scaled by Ronaldo and Messi, it’s Kylian Mbappe. The Frenchman is considered one of the most talented players of this generation by many and recently, Michel Platini agreed with the claim.

“I really like Neymar,” Michel Platini said as reported by Marca.

“And then there’s this kid who plays with him at Paris Saint-Germain, who isn’t too bad himself,” Mbappe, that’s it!

“He could be the star over the next 10 years. I would suggest him to anyone.

“I don’t know if Juventus can afford him right now, and it will be even more difficult in the future as his value will increase even more.”

The former Juventus player also talked about the current Juve squad. Platini mentioned that Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane reminded him of himself at his time with the Italian giants.

“Dybala has great quality,” he insisted.

“He does everything at speed like [Roberto] Baggio or [Alessandro] Del Piero. He’s more like them than me.

“Zinedine Zidane was the one player who reminded me of me because we were both midfielders,” the former UEFA president said.
