Manchester City fullback Danilo has likened Kevin de Bruyne to his former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
Danilo played alongside Ronaldo at Madrid and is also a team-mate of Neymar for his country.
And he believes the Belgian is operating at a similar level, telling Arab News: "I think he's already there, for everything he's been doing in the club, in the games.
"Without any doubt, he's one of the best players in the world. Kevin is incredible.
"As a football player, I don't need to say it because he's been showing how amazing he is in every game. He is an amazing player, special, extremely clinical.
"As a person he is also incredible, a great team-mate, a great leader in this squad and he is helping us a lot."
