Real Madrid target will be at the Ballon D’Or ceremony to support Karim Benzema tonight.
Karim Benzema is the favorite to win the Ballon d’Or 2022 event, which will be held on Monday night.
The Frenchman was the driving force behind Real Madrid’s La Liga and Champions League victories last season, scoring an incredible 44 goals and dishing out 15 assists across all competitions.
While Madrid supporters would be happy to see their club captain receive his due on the biggest stage, they might also need to keep an eye on Kylian Mbappe, who is Mbappe’s fellow countryman and a transfer target, at the event.
Because of his great friendship with Karim Benzema, the Paris Saint-Germain forward will attend the ceremony, according to Le Parisien (h/t Madrid Xtra).
Nuno Mendes is thought to be Kylian Mbappe’s companion, not Lionel Messi.
It is said that the 23-year-old is aware that Benzema will take home the Ballon d’Or.
His visit in support of his close friend will further fuel rumors about Mbappe’s future, since some reliable sources have said that he is considering a move to Real Madrid as soon as January.
The possibility of Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe teaming up at Real Madrid has been openly discussed. This season, it appeared inevitable until Mbappe decided to unexpectedly sign a contract extension with the Ligue 1 giants.
A transfer to the Spanish capital has been ruled out by various publications due to the rumor that the connection between the two teams is strained.
If Los Blancos opt to sign the World Cup champion, who may take their already superior team to the next level, only time will tell.
For the time being, news regarding a potential blockbuster deal will certainly get more attention because to the presence of Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema.
