Dani Alves, Edinson Cavani and Neymar grabbed the goals but Kylian Mbappe was the true star of the show as Paris Saint-Germain beat Bayern Munich 3-0 at the Parc des Princes.

The 18-year-old’s talent is clear for all to see and to see him do it on the biggest stage of all - against Bayern in the Champions League - was impressive.

Mbappe assisted Cavani’s goal and produced a brilliant run that led to Neymar adding a third.

David Alaba is still recovering from the move Mbappe put on him, a skill Rio Ferdinand joked was “illegal”.

“It’s too much. It’s illegal, really, what he’s doing. It shouldn’t be allowed,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

Ferdinand’s praise didn’t stop there.

“But Mbappe’s in there, making a difference on the Champions League stage, in a team of superstars,” he added. “It’s just amazing to see. Get out of the stadium!”

“Beautiful to watch. He’s great.”

Gary Lineker tweeted

Ferdinand was joined in the BT Sport studio by Gary Lineker, who was as equalled enthralled by Mbappe’s performance.

Lineker shared his view that the young forward will be football’s next big thing, writing on Twitter: “Mbappe will be the next global superstar. Frighteningly good.”

There will soon be a vacancy, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi both in their 30s, and Mbappe certainly looks capable of filling it.

He scored 26 goals in all competitions for AS Monaco last season and certainly doesn’t look out of place alongside Neymar and Cavani in Paris.

Mbappe: 'We are here to win every game'

PSG swept past Bayern, the 2013 champions, and Mbappe, rather scarily, believes the best is yet to come from Unai Emery’s side.

"The story is only just beginning,” the teenager told Canal+ after the 3-0 win, per Sky Sports.

“We knew in our hearts that we had to put in a great performance against a great team. We did that.

"Expectations were high, which is normal after a summer transfer window like ours.

“It was a complete performance and now we move on to the next match on Saturday. We are here to win every game."

PSG exited the competition in humiliating fashion last season but nobody is making fun of them right now.
