It’s no secret that Real Madrid want to sign Kylian Mbappe away from Paris Saint-Germain. Mbappe’s contract with PSG expires in 2022 and Madrid will try their very best to complete the signing this summer, although the French club would ultimately need to give the green light and negotiate in order for that to happen.

Karim Benzema is using every chance he’s getting to praise Mbappe publicly, and now he’s gone even further during an interview with AFP.

“It would be ideal if he came to Madrid. If he wants to leave PSG, then let him come to Madrid quickly. All big players want to join Real Madrid,” said Benzema when asked about Mbappe’s future and the rumors of a move to the Spanish capital.

Benzema also described Mbappe’s game.

“He’s a quick, agile and efficient player who can do it all,” he said.

Benzema seems keen on playing alongside Mbappe in Real Madrid, so he will surely try to keep building their chemistry with the French national team in the upcoming UEFA Euro.
