Karim Benzema reckons Kylian Mbappe leaving Ligue leaders Monaco early won't be good for the striker.
Mbappe has been magnificent for Monaco this season both in the league and in the Champions League, scoring 19 goals in total so far.
However, Real Madrid frontman Benzema has advised the 19-year-old not to rush into a move
'I've been told he is a phenomenon, a very good player,' Benzema told RMC. 'Honestly, I still haven't seen him. He's a young player. Football is really hard, especially at big clubs.
'I arrived at Madrid at 21. I had already done a lot of things at Lyon, but when I got here I got a slap in the face.
'My first year was too difficult. You're far from your family, it's not the same. Those who are next to you are there to take your place. It's very difficult. But from what people have said, he's a very good player, and I hope he'll have a great career, little by little.
'I think you mustn't leave too soon. Things go well, but the day when it goes less well, that's the problem. He's 18, how do you handle it when it doesn't go as well, when people don't speak as well about you, when you're put under pressure?'
