The captain of Real Madrid no longer hides his desire to play with his teammate in the French team.

Kylian Mbappé is increasingly desired at Real Madrid. After the match against Lorient, the PSG striker has – once again – assured that he had not decided on his future, he who is free of any contract next June. Captain of the Merengues, Karim Benzema, no longer hides his desire to see the 23-year-old Frenchman land in the Spanish capital.

I like to play with him on the national team, and I would like to play with him in the club. I think we would score double the number of goals. Or maybe even triple! (Laughs)” assure Karim Benzema, during an interview with L’Equipe.

“With Mbappé, we get along well because we know what the other will do.”

Returning to the French team last June to play in the Euro, the old-trained player (2005-2009) has since played 13 games with the Blues, including 11 with Kylian Mbappé. And for almost one now, the collaboration between the two on the ground has been felt. Since his return to the French team, Karim Benzema has scored nine times, including six times on passes from the Bondy native.

I analyze precisely each one to know where he will go in different situations, explaining No. 9 of Real. With Mbappé, we get along well because we know what the other will do. For example, we both like to go to the left, but we will never be there simultaneously: the other will come inside or take the depth.”

Having become very complicit on and off the pitch, the two Frenchmen exchanged a few words before the return match between Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Merengues striker claims to have “said nothing special” and exchanged “banalities” with his compatriot. “I was rooming, and I wished him a good game.” New episode of a soap opera that has not delivered its epilogue.
