And Benzema – who is part of Les Bleus’ Euro 2020 squad along with Mbappe – has given his seal of approval should a deal take place.

He told AFP: “If he came to Real, that would be ideal.

“All great players want to come to Real one day so I wish it will happen quickly, if he wants to leave PSG that is, they are a good team too.”

Benzema also told Marca: “I don’t know what will happen, but Mbappe would be welcome at Real Madrid.

“He is a player who has all the qualities to be a player of Madrid in the future, I hope so.

Speaking to L’Obs, Mbappe said: “My parents wanted me to start my career in France, to be educated in France.

“To play football, but also to continue my education.

“To go to Spain, even if it was with [Zinedine] Zidane, it was another country, another culture.”
