Real Madrid star Karim Benzema has said that Kylian Mbappe’s decision to snub the Spanish giants will not affect their relationship.
Benzema also said he respects Mbappe’s decision to remain at PSG.
The 23-year-old scored 28 goals to help PSG win the Ligue 1 title this season, and it was almost certain the 23-year-old was moving to Spain until a sudden change of mind last week.
Real were furious with Mbappe’s decision, and Benzema did not seem too pleased either.
Benzema now addressed Mbappe’s matter after Real. It was Madrid's 1-0 win over Liverpool that handed them the Champions League glory on Saturday.
“I would have liked him to have been able to fulfil his dream of playing for Real Madrid, being together," Benzema told Telefoot.
“He chose PSG. We must respect him." It’s his choice, and he has a lot of responsibilities.
“We will enjoy playing together in the national team." Everyone makes their own choices.
Real Madrid are Real Madrid. I’m not disappointed. We are good friends; it won’t affect our relationship.
