Karim Benzema has admitted any team in the world would want to sign Kylian Mbappe in the summer transfer window.

PSG superstar Mbappe has been linked with a move to Benzema’s side Real Madrid after another sensational goalscoring season in the French capital.

The 22-year-old has scored 42 goals in all competitions for PSG but some reports have suggested he could be set for the next stage in his career.

Mbappe announced his name on the world stage in France’s World Cup victory in Russia in 2018.

And he will be aiming to repeat that success in this summer’s Euros with strike partner Karim Benzema.

Benzema has been reintroduced to the French squad by boss Didier Deschamps for the first time in six years.

And the Real Madrid forward has stated Mbappe would be welcomed at the Bernabeu next season.

“Kylian is a young player, with immense quality and he is a good boy,” Benzema told Marca.

“He would be welcome to Real Madrid, of course, but what team wouldn’t sign him without hesitation?

“For now he has a contract at PSG and we will see what he decides. Today our priority is to win the Euros.”

Benzema also reacted to the surprise exit of Los Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane, who was replaced by former Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti this week.

“Yes, of course, it was a surprise for everyone, not just me,” he added.

“But it’s true, he has always behaved like an older brother with me.

“Because I have known him for a long time and he helped me a lot on the field and outside. It was a difficult decision for everyone.

“Now we have another coach and we are going to try to succeed again.”
