Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has stated that Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe would be a ‘perfect’ partner alongside Vinicius Junior should the forward move to Spain in one of the upcoming transfer windows.
The 22-year-old, who has less than seven months remaining on his contract, has been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, with one report claiming that Los Blancos are convinced the Frenchman will sign for the La Liga giants in 2022.
Mbappe himself has hinted at a potential exit from PSG, and Casemiro is confident that his potential arrival would benefit the team, especially for his Brazilian compatriot Vinicius.
Speaking to the press ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with Inter Milan on Tuesday, Casemiro said: “Mbappe is not our player, but he is, of course, a great player”.
“He is top three in the world. And he is compatible to any club in the world. Vinicius and him are in a great moment of their careers and they will be compatible”.
Mbappe has made 192 appearances for PSG across all competitions, scoring 141 goals and providing 74 assists.
