But the player himself has suggested that was never his overall ambition and has never placed any limits on his potential peak.
Mbappe continued: “I never said I was going to be the greatest player in history. But I never gave myself a limit.
“If I get to a certain level, I don’t want to put up a barrier and tell myself that it’s good, that it’s my max.
“No, I try to push my limits and I see how far it takes me. For now it is successful for me, and I will continue like this until the end of my career.”
Mbappe, along with Neymar, both have uncertain futures with the French champions, although manager Mauricio Pochettino is confident the two will say.
