Mbappe doesn't need to leave PSG for greatness - Pele
Kylian Mbappe can become the best player in the world while at Paris Saint-Germain, according to Brazil legend Pele.
Mbappe, who turned 20 in December, is already recognised as one of the leading talents in the European game and lifted the World Cup with France last summer.
Having cut his teeth at Monaco, the talented forward moved to PSG in the summer of 2017 and has already bagged 52 goals from 79 appearances in all competitions for the Parc des Princes outfit.
While the Parisians have dominated French football since being acquired by Qatar Sports Investments, they have yet to win the Champions League and fell short once again this season when being knocked out by Manchester United.
It has been suggested that Mbappe needs to move to one of the Spanish giants to take his profile even higher but Pele disagrees.
"He doesn't need to leave PSG," he told AS. "He must continue playing as he is because he will become the best in the world."
And, speaking in the third person, he added: "If we compare him with Pele, Pele never left Santos to be the best player in the world."
