    Paris Saint-Germain superstars Kylian Mbappe gave a momentous response when quizzed about succeeding Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo as the next winner of the Ballon d’Or.

    The 19year-old French star has been in superb form for France this World Cup producing outstanding and match-winning performance that has helped France reach the World Cup final after a keenly contested World Cup semi final match against Belgium, and will face either of England or Croatia in the World Cup final on Sunday .

    Mbappe is seen as a one of the most promising youngster in the World and is expected to step into void that will be left by Lionel Messi and his idol Cristiano Ronaldo when the duo performances decline as the go out of strength and enthusiasm due to age.

    Both Ronaldo and Messi have won the award among themselves over the last 10 years with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi sharing it five-apiece. Ronaldo whose transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus was confirmed earlier on Tuesday has won the Ballon d’Or in each of the last two years but stranglehold together with that of his Barcelona counterpart Messi, on the award appears to be waning,

    A World Cup win for France might pose Mbappe as a strong contender for the prize and also throw the race wide open, but going up against the Messi and Ronaldo is almost an impossible task for an ordinary player and Mbappe though he stand a chance of making a podium finish has not given it a second thought.

    ‘I couldn’t care less about that,’ he told TF1. ‘I want the World Cup. I want to sleep with it. I wasn’t born in 1998, so I have never seen people on the Champs-Elysees celebrating. I am going to give everything in this final. We will kill ourselves on the pitch to finish the job.’

    Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who his a huge admirer of the younger star was full of praise for the teenager.
    He told beIN Sports: ‘He is the type of player who always makes you hopeful when he gets the ball that he’s going to do something special. Watching him soothes the heart.’

    It's too obvious that Mbappe will relish a winning the World Cup but he's trying to focus on the World Cup, which is the greatest trophy a football can win.
    I believe that question was asked at the wrong time. If that question was asked after the World Cup, Mbappe will give another respond.
