Karim Benzema, a Real Madrid figure, wanted his French National Team partner Kylian Mbappé to join the Spanish team because he would be "ideal" for next season after a year without titles.

"It would be ideal for him to come to Real Madrid," said Karim Benzema in dialogue with the AFP news agency, in relation to one of the great figures of Paris Saint Germain and the world. "All the great players want to come to Real Madrid one day, so I wish him to do it quickly, if he has the win to leave PSG, which is also a good team," continued Benzema, Real Madrid's top scorer in the last season.

Likewise, the attacker analyzed a complex year for the White House, outside in the semifinals of the European Champions League and without LaLiga and the Copa del Rey: "It has been a difficult year." However, one of those spoiled by the outgoing coach Zinedine Zidane, recalled: "We have finished second in La Liga, being able to win it until the last day, and we have reached the semifinals in the Champions League."

Benzema scored 30 goals in all competitions, with 24 in La Liga, six in the Champions League and one in the Copa del Rey.
