Camavinga Prefers Benzema Over Mbappe

Translate by Sama Marwan,

French player Eduardo Camavinga of Real Madrid prefers his former teammate Karim Benzema, the star of Al-Ittihad Jeddah, over his compatriot Kylian Mbappe, striker of Paris Saint-Germain.

Camavinga was asked about the best player he has played with and responded in a statement highlighted by “Football España” network: “If I had to choose one! Kylian Mbappe isn’t with me on a daily basis, so I prefer to choose Karim Benzema.”

Camavinga played alongside Benzema since joining Real Madrid in the summer of 2021 until the veteran striker’s departure to Al-Ittihad Jeddah last summer.

Camavinga is expected to team up with Kylian Mbappe in the French national team’s formation during the European Championship next summer.

Kylian Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires this season, and many reports suggest he is close to moving to Real Madrid for free next summer.
