Gianluigi Donnarumma called Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Kylian Mbappe an "alien" after his late winner in the Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Mbappe stunned the visitors to score the match's only goal in second half stoppage time, beating a pair of defenders before sweeping a shot into the net.

Donnarumma joined a chorus of people praising Mbappe's skill after the dramatic performance.

What has been said?

"Mamma mia, Kylian is an alien, he’s an extra-terrestrial!" Donnarumma told Sky Sport Italia.

"You see it in training, he’s just incredible. I don’t know what he’ll do next season, that is up to him, but we will enjoy him every day he’s here.”

Opposing manager Carlo Ancelotti said Mbappe is currently the best player in Europe.

"Unstoppable," he told reporters "We tried to control him, double up on him, but he can always invent something."

Mbappe is rumoured to be joining Real Madrid this summer after an attempted purchase last year failed to materialise.

PSG now head to Spain with a 1-0 advantage for the second leg.
