Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is hopeful of linking up with Paris Saint-Germain’s superstar Kylian Mbappe at the Spanish club.

The final offer from the Spanish giants was reportedly worth more than €200 million, but


refused to sanction the striker's departure, despite the fact that he refused to sign a new contract at Parc des Princes.

Kylian Mbappe

confirmed last week that he told the Ligue 1 giants that he wanted to leave in July after

Real Madrid

’s interest became apparent.

Florentino Perez

has hinted that the Spanish giants may look to sign Mbappe in January, when the prolific striker will be free to speak with foreign clubs.

Benzema has publicly welcomed the prospect of the 22-year-old's arrival at Santiago Bernabeu and expressed his desire to play alongside his France teammate.

"Do I want to play with Kylian at Madrid? I've said it before, and if you want, I'll say it again. Of course, one day,"

he told



"He is a great player, but you have to respect PSG."

Unlike Benzema, Mbappe has made an underwhelming start to the 2021-22 campaign with just four goals in his first 11 appearances for PSG.
