France star Raphael Varane has described World Cup hero Kylian Mbappe as “a young alien”.

The duo were instrumental in helping Les Bleus go all the way in Russia and the Real Madrid defender has heaped praise on the PSG superstar, who netted four goals in the finals and also managed to win the Best Young Player award.

“I have known some aliens. I think this is the first time I have met a young alien,” Varane joked in an interview with L’Equipe, stating that the 19-year-old’s ability is out of this world.

“Normally I meet extraterrestrials when they are 25, 30-years old. At the World Cup, I met one under the age of 20.

“With him, everything goes faster. When I talk tactically with him before the matches, I do not have time to finish my sentences before he has already understood and assimilated what I’m saying.”
