Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham expressed his enthusiasm on Monday about the potential of playing alongside Kylian Mbappe next season. The France captain is widely anticipated to join Los Blancos upon the expiration of his Paris Saint-Germain contract this summer.

The addition of Mbappe could create a formidable attacking lineup, pairing him with Vinicius Junior, while Bellingham, who is Madrid’s top goalscorer this season, would provide support from the midfield.

“I don’t pick the team and I certainly don’t make the transfers, but Kylian Mbappe, what a player, who wouldn’t want to play with someone as good as him?” Bellingham told reporters during a media day ahead of the Champions League final on Saturday. “I don’t want to put any more pressure on the situation. I know for him it’s probably difficult having everyone always talking about him, but it would be really nice.”

Real Madrid are set to face Borussia Dortmund at Wembley, aiming to secure their 15th Champions League title. Winning the Champions League is one of the key objectives for the 25-year-old Mbappe, who recently led PSG to victory in the French Cup in his final match for the club.

Mbappe hinted that the announcement of his next club is imminent. “All I wanted was to end things well with my club, with a trophy. I think there is a time for everything and I will announce my future club in good time,” said Mbappe. “I think it will be in a few days, so there is no problem. I don’t know when yet. There are still some details to be sorted out, but the most important thing was to finish on a high here.”
