The 18-year-old has exploded onto the scene in recent weeks and has netted 11 goals in his last 10 outings, including a double that helped the principality side to a 3-0 win over Caen on Sunday.

Mbappe, who was born in Paris, scored Monaco’s first and third in a comfortable win at Stade Michel d’Ornano, which means his side enjoy a three-point advantage over the defending champions with eight matches of the season remaining.

Marquinhos would be delighted to team up with him in the future.

“It’s doing very well at Monaco and I hope that our leaders are following him – he’s a player who can make the difference and has great quality,” he said.

“He’s a very good player. At his age, it’s not easy to put in successive performances in Ligue 1 that are so strong.

“He’s gone into the France squad, he’s in great form, he’s scoring goals and will be a very important player for France and Monaco.

“He’s got a great future and I hope that he continues to work hard and does not stop because there’s still a lot for him to learn.”

Mbappe is already up to 12 goals for the season, despite starting only 11 top-flight fixtures for Leonardo Jardim’s side.
