Real Madrid have been dreaming of Kylian Mbappé for a few years. They know that he is the only player who can restore hope and greatness to the team, and he is the leader they need to reign in Europe again. But if bringing Mbappé is already a dream that is getting closer to coming true, joining him with Karim Benzema would be a real fantasy. At each national team break, the madridistas watch the connection between the two players enraptured and rub their hands together, waiting for the day when these two players will play in white at the Santiago Bernabéu. With France we have already been able to see how those two spend them.
But if to that pair you add a third element for which Zidane had been sighing for years, Paul Pogba, happiness would already be complete. Madrid more French-style but under the baton of Carlo Ancelotti with a more colorful game than the one proposed by Deschamps with France. Pogba has a reputation for being a physical player, something that we will not deny, but he has a quality to move the ball and get it out played at the height of the great players. If with the national team he already leaves us details in each game, in Madrid he could unleash that creativity. If Zizou insisted so much on him, it must be for a reason.
Pogba and Mbappé would be two of the best companions Benzema could have at Real Madrid, and bringing these three players together would make Madrid a practically invincible team. Pogba and Mbappé would contribute what this Real Madrid lacks: more consistency in the center of the field, and incidentally a replacement of guarantees for Casemiro, Kroos and Modric, and in the case of Mbappé it would be that differential player who can beat you the game in one play. The most important thing is that they are proven players who offer you immediate performance and there is no waiting one, two or three years for them. Madrid have already wasted a few years in that renewal that has not just arrived and cannot continue wasting any more time with somewhat uncertain signings.
And Benzema does not need to add anything else, it is enough to see his games to understand that we are facing a great who has thrown a team like Real Madrid on his back. If Mbappé and Pogba arrive at the Bernabéu to play with Benzema, Madrid would take that leap in quality that it has been losing little by little in recent years, and will have nothing to envy the constellation of stars of PSG or Manchester City. The stars are lining up for Florentino to step forward and collect this trident, if he does not do so next summer then it will be too late and they will have wasted a unique opportunity.
