Chiellini reserved high praise for the former Monaco star and labelled him a 'priceless' masterpiece. The Juventus star added that Kylian Mbappe was an unstoppable striker and has the pace, instinct, technique and does not lack anything.

In his three seasons in the French capital, Mbappe has netted a staggering 90 goals in just 120 appearances.
