Karim Benzema has taken aim at compatriot Kylian Mbappe after the superstar forward rejected Real Madrid in favour of staying at PSG.
Mbappe appeared to be all set to move to the Santiago Bernabeu. Some reports claimed that he had already thrashed out an agreement with Florentino Perez, but ultimately, he decided to extend his PSG contract until the summer of 2025.
One man who appears to have been hurt by the rejection is Karim Benzema, who plays with Mbappe for the French National Team and was no doubt excited by the prospect of linking up with him at club level.

Benzema is evidently not afraid to show his feelings of anger and betrayal towards Mbappe, even in the public eye, despite the fact that the pair will be competing alongside each other at the World Cup later in the year.
Benzema took to Instagram to post a picture of rap legend Tupac and the close friend who betrayed him, a clear dig at Mbappe after he went back on his word and snubbed Real Madrid. Oh dear…
