Arsene Wenger calls Kylian Mbappe, the new Pele

Kylian Mbappe

Arsenal Football club manager Arsene Wenger has described Paris Saint-Germain wonder kid Kylian Mbappe as the new Pele’.

Gunners boss Wenger claimed that the 18-year-old has the poten ntial to become the best player in the world.

Mbappe joined PSG on loan from Monaco last month and will complete a £166million move to Paris next summer.

The teenager made his PSG debut on Friday and scored a goal in a 5-1 win over Metz.

Neymar also netted in that victory, his fourth goal in as many Ligue 1 appearances since joining PSG in a world-record 198 million pounds transfer from Barcelona.

Wenger is unsure what motivated Neymar to leave the Nou Camp for Parc des Princes as the Arsenal chief believes Barca still have better players.

Neymar was at Barca for four seasons, winning two La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys, one Champions League and one FIFA Club World Cup.

He will earn 26 million pounds per year in Paris.
