He enhanced his skill by playing along Neymar in PSG and Griezmann in the national team. He learned a lot from these two. He is playing with some serious talents and big names. He is playing for one of the best club and also for the best National Team in the world. Mbappe has performed consistently excellent in for many seasons. And, he’s won a World Cup.
Erling Haaland also has extraordinary speed and insane finishing. He only plays as a striker. In future, he may be deployed in other positions, but he is still developing.
