One of Real Madrid’s mainstay players, Raphael Varane, spoke about his teammate in the French national team, Kylian Mbappe. The defender wants the 22-year-old winger to move closer to the Santiago Bernabeu and become his team-mate there.
In fact, Kylian Mbappe has long been linked with Real Madrid. The 22-year-old winger is known to idolize Cristiano Ronaldo and is claimed to want to follow in the footsteps of his idol wearing a Real Madrid costume.
Even this speculation grew stronger when it was discovered that Mbappe had refused to sign a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain. According to his information, Mbappe is currently “confused” about whether he will stay in Paris or try a new adventure outside France.
This speculation is still quite busy being discussed by European media, and Raphael Varane, who is a teammate of Mbappe’s team at France, also commented.
First of all, Varane lauds the quality and talent that Kylian Mbappe has, because at a very young age, he has managed to become one of the best.
“Kylian Mbappe is young but he has made great progress and he is growing. Mbappe is a versatile player and he continues to score goals, he is one of the best.” Varane said quoted from Goal International.
Because that’s implicitly, Varane wants his partner to join Real Madrid, joining a team filled with the best players in the world.
“My goal is to play alongside the best players and Kylian Mbappe is one of the best players in European football,” said the 27-year-old center-back.
Furthermore, Varane also commented on Zinedine Zidane, who has recently been linked with Didier Deschamps’ position as coach of the French National Team.
“The French national team is a target for every French coach, it is normal that he has the potential to be considered. However, for the moment, it is not something that is relevant to discuss,”
“Our coach [Didier Deschamps] is doing a very good job and we have to focus on a short-term target: to ensure a place at the World Cup and then Euro 2021,” said Varane.
