Platini tells Juventus: Go for Mbappe!

Juventus great Michel Platini would like to see PSG striker Kylian Mbappe move to Turin.

Mbappe is being linked with Real Madrid for the summer market.

But Platini says, “I really like Neymar. And then there's this kid who plays with him at Paris Saint-Germain, who isn't too bad himself…

“Mbappe, that's it! He could be the star over the next 10 years. I would suggest him to anyone.

“I don't know if Juventus can afford him right now, and it will be even more difficult in the future as his value will increase even more."

Platini was also asked if he saw similarities between himself and Paulo Dybala.

“He is more similar to [Alessandro] Del Piero and [Roberto] Baggio than he is to me.

“[Zinedine] Zidane reminded me more of myself because we were more like midfielders. Dybala has great quality and does everything at speed like Baggio did."
