Kylian Mbappe could help Real Madrid score "triple" the amount of goals if he were to join from Paris Saint-Germain, according to Los Blancos striker Karim Benzema.
France superstar Mbappe is nearing the end of his PSG contract and has been continually linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, a transfer that would see him link up with Les Bleus team-mate Benzema.
Mbappe has 28 goals and 20 assists from 38 appearances across all competitions this season, while Benzema is top of LaLiga's goalscoring charts with 24.
Speaking with L'Equipe, Benzema said he is excited by the prospect of playing alongside Mbappe at Madrid.
"I like to play with [Mbappe] in the national team, and I would like to play with him in the club," he said.
"I think [Madrid] would score twice as many goals – or maybe even triple."
Benzema also discussed his goals with the national team after returning from a six-year exile last year.
"[Playing for France] is a pride for me, and I am happy," he said.
"There is a good adaptation, the level is very high, and that is what I like the most. Now I want to win a trophy with the France team."
Benzema missed Real Madrid's 4-0 El Clasico humbling at the hands of Barcelona and said it was not just the margin of victory that was concerning but the manner in which it took place.
"El Clasico, from the stands, I had a bad time," he said. "We were on a good run, and we had everything [in place] to continue.
"In fact, you can lose a match 4-0, don't worry. But not like that.
"We didn't show anything, we didn't try, we didn't show who we were. We let them play."
Real Madrid will be back in action on Wednesday in Champions League quarter-final action at Stamford Bridge, with Benzema saying: "Chelsea are a great team, and we will try to get a good result in London."
