Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe’s good relationship is no secret. The two have a great bond and understanding, and one is a Real Madrid legend while the other is likely to become the club’s next star signing.
On Sunday, each scored as France came from behind to win the Nations League at Spain’s expense. Hours later, they were publicly exchanging words on social media, sharing a photo of themselves entering the Stadio San Siro dressing room together after the game.
“Champions,” wrote Mbappe. “That’s all we want.”
The pair’s relationship has strengthened since Benzema’s return to the France squad after six years of exile, and it has only added fuel to the fire of rumours linking the Paris Saint-Germain forward to Real Madrid.
Los Blancos tried to sign him last summer but failed, and his current contract at PSG will expire in June 2022.
