Who could be the next Messi or Ronaldo?

The era of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is coming to an end soon. We’ve compiled a list of players who we think have the potential to be as great as Messi and Ronaldo.

Kylian Mbappe

Currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain, this 20-year-old is already the world’s most expensive player from a transfer value perspective by the CIES (International Centre for Sports Studies). Mbappe became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup, and became the second teenager, after Pelé, to score in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final. He also received the Best Young Player and French Player of the Year awards for his performances.
