Kylian Mbappe has downplayed Karim Benzema’s dig after he decided to turn down a move to Real Madrid and stay at Paris Saint-Germain.

The France international appeared ready to join Madrid this summer after signing a contract with the Spanish champions.

But the 23-year-old made a late about-face and agreed a new deal with PSG that ties him to the French club until 2025.

Following Mbappe’s decision, Benzema posted on his Instagram a picture of his hand pointing to the Madrid badge and another of Tupac shaking hands with actor Stephen Baldwin.

The image has connotations of betrayal as some believe the man in the background of the image allegedly betrayed Tupac.

‘Yes, yes, and I’ve seen several Real Madrid players post things. I have nothing to say,” Mbappe told Marca.

“Of course when I go to the France national team I will explain to Karim why I stayed at PSG because we have a good relationship.”

When asked about Benzema’s post during his press conference, Mbappe replied: ‘They must not have done Saint-Cyr [French military training] to understand that it comes from above, right?

“I didn’t want to overdo it. I know everyone was talking about Karim and Kylian, Kylian and Karim… but when we were with the national team, we only talked about dinner. We didn’t talk about Real Madrid.

“I didn’t mean to force this thing. When we see each other we will discuss it. He will ask me why and I will explain this decision to him.”
