France and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has what it takes to win the Ballon d'Or, according to Blaise Matuidi.
The 19-year-old who was impressive for Lea Bleus during their World Cup triumph, is among the nominees for this year's accolade, and Matuidi reckons the teenager will win the individual prize “this year or in the future”.
"He's among the nominees so he can win. He's shown that he is a great player despite his young age," he told a news conference.
"What he shows on the pitch is very impressive. We also see it in training. We are very happy to work with him.
"I'm not going to give favourites because I don't want to have enemies in the group. May the best man win.
"But Mbappe has everything to win the Ballon d'Or this year or in the future."
