Florentino Perez lavish praise on Karim Benzema as the Madrid chairman believes the France international is “the best number 9 in the world” and could hope to match him with Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid.
Benzema keeps on being a guaranteed starter for Madrid, but lately, Benzema has not featured for France since 2015, having been charged by police regarding an alleged endeavour to blackmail his national team colleague Mathieu Valbuena.
The 29-year-old has denied any wrongdoing and the case is yet to go to trial. The Madrid president has upheld the forward, commending him as “the best French player”, and he plans to see him end his professional career at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“Karim is a blend of [Zinedine] Zidane and Ronaldo,” Perez told RMC. “He is the best number 9 in the World and the best French player.
“I am convinced that he will stay at Madrid and, while now we don’t discuss contract restorations, in the event that it was dependent on me, I would keep him here amid his entire career.
Mbappe, then, has appreciated a breakout season with Monaco, making him one of the top focuses for various clubs taking into the off-season transfer window.
While Perez guaranteed he would not comment on the likelihood of conveying Mbappe to Madrid, he was to somewhat enthuse by blending the 18-year-old with Benzema.
“A duo of Benzema and Mbappe? Everything is possible,” he added. “But at this time of the season, I don’t want to talk about that. We don’t talk about players from other teams.
“Right now, all we are thinking about is how to win LaLiga and the Champions League,” Perez stated.
