Kylian Mbappe reveals his all-time dream XI

Kylian Mbappe might just be one of the hottest properties in European football right now.

At just 18, the French forward has been turning heads at all of the top clubs around Europe by scoring 19 goals this season for Monaco.

More recently he scored in both legs of the Champions League last-16 victory over Manchester City. Since then the British tabloids have gone into overdrive, linking him with potential switches to the Premier League.

There's no doubt Monaco are going to have some trouble trying to keep the latest wonderkid to graduate through their ranks beyond this summer.

But where Mbappe would like to go next has not been revealed, possibly, until now.

That's because the teenager has revealed his all-time greatest XI and hasn't included any current Premier League players.

His dream team, collected by Foot Mercato, is dominated by La Liga stars of past and present and in fairness, would be pretty unstoppable.

As reported by The Sun, legendary Italian Gianluigi Buffon is in goal, behind a back four of Roberto Carlos, Paolo Maldini, Sergio Ramos and Cafu.

You can tell Mbappe is a forward by the way he has set up his midfield. Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho have been picked to play centrally, just behind current Barcelona stars Neymar and Lionel Messi.

Up front, the Monaco ace has gone for the double act of Cristiano Ronaldo and his Brazilian namesake who played for Real Madrid and Barca.

Including Ronaldo's stints at both clubs, that makes five Madrid players, four from Barcelona and three from Serie A.

Anyone else get the feeling Mbappe is a fan of La Liga?

Of course, it would be quite a stretch to rule out a summer move to the Premier League on the basis of a dream XI alone.

Nevertheless, it could mean that the Spanish sides might already be one step ahead should they be interested when the race for Mbappe's signature really heats up at the end of the season.
