Kylian Mbappe has selected three players he would like to learn more about, including Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

Mason Mount is one of three players that Kylian Mbappe would like to read more about in the future.

The 22-year-old’s standout performances in the Chelsea midfield last season helped him become a Champions League winner and a fully-fledged member of the England national team.

His superb displays have not gone unnoticed in Europe either, with fellow youngster Mbappe an admirer. The Paris Saint-Germain ace would like to know more about Mount, as well as well former teammate Gianluigi Buffon and Barcelona captain Lionel Messi.

Quizzed on which three players he would read interviews in France Football, Mbappe said: “Gigi [Buffon] because I would like to know what he is going to do next.

“Messi, because he does not speak much, so we would discover things. Mason Mount, because he is a superb player that we don’t yet know much about.”

Of course, Buffon will become a free agent on July 1 once his Juventus contract expires. The 43-year-old goalkeeper is reportedly in talks for a return to boyhood club Parma in Serie A. Messi, on the other hand, is a six-time Ballon d’Or winner and regarded as one of the greatest players of all-time.

Mount, meanwhile, has been named as a starter for England’s first Euro 2020 match against Croatia in Group D on Sunday afternoon.
