Karim Benzema continues to be the main man of Real Madrid since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and is a candidate to win the Golden Ball for 2021.
While making very good appearances for Los Blancos, the striker was reinstated by Didier Deschamps in France and has stated that as a youngster he has thought about the prestigious individual award.
“It is a trophy that all players love. Ever since I was little, I thought about winning that award. “If I approach him, it is because of my teammates”, Benzema declared for TVE.
He was also asked about speculation about the transfer of Kylian Mbappe to the Spanish capital from next season.
“I like being with him in the national team. In the future, why not? He is a great player, but PSG must be respected. I have always said it and I will say it again, I hope we will play together one day “, the 33-year-old emphasized.
