Benzema makes Mbappe confession

World News

Karim Benzema has made a telling confession about Kylian Mbappe, amid reports linking the Paris Saint-Germain superstar with a switch to Real Madrid.

With Mbappe's contract at the French giants set to expire in June, there have been contrasting reports about whether or not he will renew his deal or move on from Paris, with Real believed to be his most likely destination if he does leave the Parc des Princes.

The 23-year-old has remained coy about future, maintaining that his decision will only be made once the current season concludes.

However, it seems some in the Los Blancos camp are ready to welcome him with open arms, with his France colleague Benzema being the latest to admit he wants his national teammate to join in him in Madrid.

"With Mbappe, we get on well because we know what the other is going to do," Benzema told L'Equipe.

"For example, we both like to go left, but we will never both be there at the same time: the other will come inside, or drop deeper.

"I like playing with him in national team and I would like to play with him in club. I think we would score double the goals. Or maybe even triple!"

Mbappe had an incredible five goal contributions in PSG's 5-1 win over Lorient on Sunday, and he was asked after that match if he had made up his mind about his future.

"I haven't made the decision, but there are new elements," he told reporters, according to the Daily Mail.

"What are they? New elements [laughs]. I'm calm, trying to make the best decision with my loved ones."
