Even though Neymar enjoys playing with Mbappe, he noted that the France international is still a long way from reaching Messi’s level.
The Frenchman has impressed in the Champions League this season, single-handedly shooting down Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
“There’s no comparison,” Neymar told France Football when asked to compare the two. “They have two very different styles of play.
“Messi is the best player I’ve seen, and Kylian is on his way to becoming one of the best.”
Neymar and Mbappe made it to the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday despite losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich in Paris.
The first leg of the quarter-final ties ended 2-3 away in German in favour of Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
They now await the winner of the game between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals.
