Paulo Dybala believes Neymar and Mbappe can surpass Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

According to the Juventus forward and Cristiano Ronaldo’s teammate Paulo Dybala, both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have the potential to eclipse Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the greatest footballers in the world. The Argentine forward also believes that the PSG pair will outshine all the leaders in the near future.

The Neymar- Mbappe pair is in great form this season as they already secured the top place for PSG in the French Ligue 1 besides scoring 25 goals and 9 assists cumulatively. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo is now facing a bit of trouble in his personal life after Jasmine Lennard called him a psychopath a few days ago.

Besides their club performances, both Neymar and Mbappe enjoyed a great international season this time. Neymar pushed his team to the quarterfinals while Mbappe secured the trophy at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Moreover, the French forward also finished as the second highest goalscorer, only after England’s Harry Kane.

While talking about the potential of Brazilian sensation Neymar, Juventus forward Paulo Dybala said “Neymar is on his way to becoming the best footballer of all,” and then added, “I’ve seen him do amazing things and he never ceases to amaze me.” Dybala also said, “He’s a fantastic player who will become the greatest because he still has a lot to give.”

He then also expressed his views on Kylian Mbappe and said “I faced Mbappe when he was playing in Monaco [too] and at his young age it was already clear that he was going to go far,” and further added “He is a world champion and what he did was in very little time. [He] will be installed in the elite of the best.”

Paulo Dybala then confirmed his liking towards Cristiano Ronaldo and his archrival Lionel Messi while saying “For now, Messi and Cristiano remain for me the number one.” The Argentine forward then also added “I would always say that they are of the same level. It is impossible to make a comparison between them and say who is better.”
