Benzema wants Mbappe at Real Madrid, Gareth Bale’s Madrid future under Ancelotti


Karim Benzema wants Kylian Mbappe

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move away from the French outfit, and Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema believes that he would be an ideal signing for the Spanish club.

He said: “If he wants to leave PSG, then let him come to Madrid quickly. All of the great players want to come to Real Madrid. He’s agile, fast, efficient and knows how to do everything.”

Mbappe has been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu in recent months, and it will be interesting to see if Real Madrid can convince PSG to sell him this summer.

The World Cup winner is one of the best players on the planet right now, and Real Madrid are missing someone like him ever since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Spanish outfit signed Eden Hazard to fill the superstar void, but the Belgian’s career at the Spanish club has been plagued with injuries, and he has not been able to make the desired impact.

Gareth Bale’s future

Meanwhile, the return of Carlo Ancelotti has added to speculations that the likes of Gareth Bale could now continue at the club.

The Welsh international has a great working relationship with the Italian manager, but he believes that the return of Ancelotti will not affect his future at the Spanish club.

He said: “I’m not thinking about anything until after the Euros. I know Carlo Ancelotti; he’s a great manager; I get on with him really well; we had some great times in the past.”

Gareth Bale will be a free agent at the end of the next season, and it seems unlikely that Real Madrid will offer him a contract extension.

The Welshman is on massive wages, and Los Blancos will have to get rid of him in order to bring someone like Mbappe to the club.

Gareth Bale has been linked with a move away from the club this summer as well, and it will be interesting to see how his future unfolds over the next few weeks.

The player is expected to take a concrete decision regarding his future after the European Championships, and his decision could play a key role in the transfer of Kylian Mbappe.

Real Madrid will need a lot of money to lure the Frenchman away from Paris Saint Germain, and they will have to free up the wage bill to accommodate his salary as well.
