Jose Mourinho believes Kylian Mbappe’s age and “incredible” ability make him more valuable than even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappe has lifted the World Cup, won Ligue 1 twice, scored 55 top-flight goals and been voted fourth in the Ballon d’Or all before his 21st birthday.

And it is his youth that former Manchester United manager Mourinho views as the critical difference when comparing his worth in the transfer market to Barcelona captain Messi, 31, and Juventus talisman Ronaldo, 34.

The ex-Chelsea, Inter and Real Madrid head coach thinks the France international could command even a higher fee than the game’s current most expensive player, his PSG team-mate Neymar.

“For a player like Mbappe, when you speak about the future, you don’t need to say what he’s going to be like in five years’ time, in 10 years’ time,” Mourinho told beIN Sports.

“Just focus on now. He’s absolutely incredible.

“I think going by his age and [and considering] the age of Cristiano, of Messi, [both] over 30, Neymar is 27… when you go to the market level and age is also a factor, I think he’s the most valuable player in the world.

“In a hypothetical transfer, he’s the most expensive player in football now.

“In terms of his qualities, [he is] unbelievable. One word is enough. It means everything.”

Mbappe scored the opener in PSG’s 3-1 win over Marseille in Le Classique before linking up with the France squad for their opening Euro 2020 qualifiers against Moldova and Iceland.
