‘What a player!’ – Jude Bellingham opens up on playing with Kylian Mbappe

Jude Bellingham has revealed his wish to play alongside Kylian Mbappe, who is expected to make the move to Real Madrid this summer.

Paris-Saint Germain bid farewell to Mbappe on Saturday in their Coupe de France final win against Lyon. He was able to pick up his 16th club trophy as he closed the door on his PSG career.

Neither Madrid nor Mbappe have publicly confirmed his future move to La Liga, but an announcement is expected to be made soon, with Los Blancos set to secure one of the world’s most prolific players on a free transfer.

Current Madrid talisman Bellingham has shared his thoughts on the move, saying he would love to play alongside Mbappe.

Speaking to BeIn Sports, Bellingham said: “You ask me about the position next year, I don’t pick the team and I certainly don’t make the transfers but you know, Kylian Mbappe, what a player.

“Who wouldn’t want to play with someone as good as him? I don’t want to kind of put any more pressure on the situation, I know for him it’s probably difficult having everyone always talking about him, but yeah it would be really nice [to play alongside him].”

Bellingham and Mbappe recorded a combined 89 goals and assists in the 2023/24 season, making a link-up in La Liga for the next few years all the more exciting.

Former Borussia Dortmund player Bellingham is preparing to face his previous club in the Champions League final on Saturday at Wembley Stadium. BVB eliminated Mbappe’s PSG at the semi-final stage to set up the final with Madrid.
