Neymar believes Paris Saint-Germain prodigy Kylian Mbappe ought to be a contender for the Ballon d'Or.
The Brazil star left Barcelona to join PSG in a world-record €222 million deal - a switch reportedly fuelled by Neymar's desire to escape Lionel Messi's shadow in his pursuit of football's ultimate individual honour.
Neymar has made a stunning start to life in France, scoring six goals and assisting as many more in just seven appearances.
Mbappe has scored just twice since his loan move from Ligue 1 champions Monaco, but his strike against Bayern Munich in Wednesday's 3-0 Champions League thrashing evidenced the 18-year-old's appetite for the big occasion.
And Neymar believes his teenage team-mate has mental and technical attributes way beyond his tender years.
"Mbappe, I have the impression that he is already 30 years old," Neymar told reporters. "He is so mature and so complete.
"He's a player who will be a pain for the defenders and he'll be in the race for the Ballon d'Or."
