Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema claims that Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe has told him he will play for Los Blancos one day.

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has claimed that Kylian Mbappe has told him he will play for Los Blancos one day.

Carlo Ancelotti's side were rumoured to be preparing a £197m bid for Mbappe on transfer deadline day, but the France international remained in his homeland after Paris Saint-Germain stalled over a move.

However, Mbappe is now expected to join Real on a free transfer in the summer of 2022, and Benzema has said that his compatriot has already given him his word over a move.

Speaking to L'Equipe, Benzema said: "Kylian Mbappe will join Real Madrid one day, I'm sure. I don't know when, but he'll come, it's only a matter of time. He said it himself."

PSG are thought to be preparing a swoop for Erling Braut Haaland ahead of Mbappe's potential departure, although Mino Raiola reportedly wants the Norwegian to earn £43m per year at his next club.

Mbappe has started the 2021-22 season with four goals and three assists from eight Ligue 1 matches, bringing his total to 136 goals and 66 assists in 181 games for PSG.
