Finally, the FIFA World Cup 2018 has concluded in Russia and the finale could not have been any better. In an epic battle between France and Croatia; French players won the title of FIFA 2018 World Cup winners.

Also, the team of Croatia was not ready to give up, even in the extended 5 minutes of the finale. In the midst of the action, there was one player who left every one awe-stricken; Kylian MBappe. 19-year-old french player Kylian became the youngest player to score in a FIFA final, after legendary player Pele.

Soon after the victory in Russia, MBappe gained more marketability than other players and every fan is comparing him with Brazilian player Neymar da Silva Santos Junior aka Neymar Jr. Spanish football club Real Madrid who was in-talks with Neymar's club, Paris Saint-Germain for getting him on-board, have a better option than Neymar i.e., Kylian MBappe.

Here are 4 reasons which explain why Spanish football club Real Madrid must consider MBappe instead of Neymar Jr:

Clever Sprints

Undoubtedly, Neymar has a more refined set of skills than his teenager competitor. But when it comes to acceleration MBappe beats everyone else. 19-year-old Kylian uses his energy and speed cleverly by ensuring not to sprint all the time for saving energy to make 3-4 killer runs in a game. In fact, MBappe's pace proved to be disastrous for the team of Croatia in the final match.

Long Career Ahead

Unlike France star MBappe, Neymar is no more a teenager. 26-year-old Brazilian player is likely to play at maximum, 3-4 years more. However, FIFA 2018 winner MBappe still has a decade-long career ahead of himself. Clearly, MBappe will prove to be a long-term investment for Real Madrid.


It goes without saying; Neymar Jr. is a controversial football player. Recently, a news broke out that Guatemala cops have seized a massive amount of narcotics with pictures of Neymar on them after discovering them on a speedboat. Well! This is the most recent controversy in Neymar's kitty but he is not yet being connected to this criminal act. However, 19-year-old MBappe likes to stay clean which may prove to be beneficial for the Spanish club.

Mental Power

It won't be wrong to say that playing a game requires physical abilities but winning it requires mental power. Especially in MBappe's case, winning FIFA World Cup at the age of 19 surely reflects his sharp mental abilities.

Just before the final match, MBappe said in an interview: “I want the World Cup. I want to sleep with it. I am going to give everything in this final. We will kill ourselves on the pitch to finish the job.”

There is no denying of the fact that FIFA 2018's most influential player is French player Kylian MBappe. And Real Madrid must hurry in getting MBappe on their side, before anyone else does. Stay tuned for more sports related updates.
