Chelsea ace Bakayoko backing ex-Monaco pal as future Ballon d'Or

Chelsea ace Tiemoue Bakayoko has no doubts one of his former teammates is destined for the Ballon d'Or.

Like Bakayoko, Kylian Mbappe left AS Monaco last summer to sign with PSG.

The teenage striker hasn't taken a backward step since the move, shining alongside Neymar and Edinson Cavani in PSG's attack.

Bakayoko isn't surprised and declared: "Of course he's a potential Ballon d'Or.

"At 18, being the second biggest transfer in the world, scoring in as many big games in the space of a year ... it's something that has not happened to a lot of people. Seeing all this we say that he can win a Ballon d'Or and I wish him well."
