Kylian Mbappe vs Neymar: 68% of fans believe Mbappe is the better player

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are the two most expensive footballers of all-time.

The two Paris Saint-Germain superstars moved to the French capital in the summer of 2017 for a combined figure of around €400m.

Neymar counted for €222m of that figure, far and away the biggest transfer fee in the history of the game.

Since that summer, both players have scored goals for fun in Paris, dominating French football with ease.

In 80 games for PSG, Neymar has scored 69 goals and assisted another 39, while Mbappe’s 120 appearances have yielded 90 goals and 49 assists.

Frightening statistics and any team in world football would kill to have the pair. But who would you pick if you were given the option of one or the other?

It’s a tough question to answer, but it’s one that received a resounding answer when we here at GIVEMESPORT asked our audience.

A whopping 68% of the 186,000 votes were for Mbappe, an absolute landslide victory for France’s golden boy.

It seems incredibly harsh on Neymar, who has been regularly touted as the third best player in the world behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Persistent injuries during the past few years have hampered his progression, but when he’s in full flow, Neymar is outrageously good.

Mbappe is the best young player on the planet, that we all know, but even the Frenchman cannot replicate some of the magic Neymar produces when the Brazilian is at his very, very best.

The tricks, his ability to create chance and his knack of scoring big goals, Neymar really can do it all.

His record on the international stage is also fantastic.

In 101 games for the Selecao, Neymar has scored 61 goals and assisted another 41 – he’s still just 28 as well.

Mbappe’s international record pales in comparison to Neymar’s, with just 13 goals and 10 assists coming from his 34 games.

Maybe some should reconsider their vote…
