Karim Benzema believes his French compatriot Paul Pogba would not have a guaranteed first-team place if he joined him at Real Madrid this summer.
Juventus midfielder Pogba is expected to be the subject of more transfer speculation this summer, with the likes of Barcelona, Real, PSG, Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea reportedly on his trail.
Madrid forward Benzema, who has played alongside the midfielder at international level, hailed the youngster but says he would have to fight for regular first-team action if he moved to the Spanish capital.
“But he is a very good player, he does very good things. Madrid have great players and he would have competition in his position, but that is normal here. It would not be easy, but he is a great player, I am sure.”
