Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has described playing with Lionel Messi as "something else".

Messi moved to the Ligue 1 side as a free agent from Barcelona in the summer.

In moving to PSG, the Argentine superstar joined Mbappe and Neymar to make up one of the most talented front three in football history.

Mbappe, who pushed to leave for Real Madrid shortly after Messi's arrival, admits that playing alongside the five-time Ballon D'Or winner is something he could have never envisaged.

"I never imagined him coming here!" Mbappe told L'Equipe.

"He's one of the rare players who I put in the 'impossible-for-me-to-play-with' category.

"For me, he was never going to leave Barcelona. I am savouring every moment alongside him. You can't forget that it remains a privilege.

"He's someone who loves football. He speaks with everyone, he's trying to integrate in his own way, even if he is a bit shy. But he's not shy on the pitch."
