Higuain: Why Haaland, Mbappe Will Take Over From Messi, Ronaldo

Former Chelsea and Juventus striker, Gonzalo Higuain has tipped Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland to take over from Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo in the near future.

Higuain, who currently plays his club football for Inter Miami, believes Mbappe and Haaland have all the characteristics to succeed Ronaldo and Messi.


Messi and Ronaldo, two of the greatest players of the 21st century, are well into their 30s and are in the twilight of their careers.

The pair have won 12 Ballon d’ Or awards among themselves.


“Kylian Mbappe has all the characteristics. I believe that Leo and Cristiano at some point will stop playing because life is like that, and Mbappe and Haaland will be their successors,” Higuain told Stats Perform.

Mbappe and Haaland could play in La Liga in the near future, just like Messi and Ronaldo did.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2022, while Haaland has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

Mbappe has scored 24 goals in 34 appearances for PSG across all competitions so far this season, while Haaland has scored 23 times for Dortmund in 20 matches in all competitions.

    Napoli selfishly denying Osimene the chance to participate at the last AFCON is negatively impacting on his recent performance n sadly altogether, NAPOLI as a team. YOU DONT WITTINGLY BREAK A CYCLE OF GOOD PERFORMANCE. OSIMENE DEFINITELY BELONGS TO THE CREAM OF HAALAND N MBAPPE. THERE IS A BIG CHANCE THESE THREE WILL BE PLAYING SEPARATELY FOR ANY OF THESE BIG THREE; BARCA, REAL MADRID N MAN CITY NEXT SEASON. That is while hoping all the gorimakpa world leaders, Putin, Biden, Boris Johnson, etc don’t foolishly plunge the world into a 3rd WORLD WAR. A situation that could easily be solve by seeking GODS WISDOM; SURRENDERING TO HUMILITY INSTEAD OF FOOLISH, ARROGANT BOASTING N SANCTIONS.
