Karim Benzema insists his relationship with Mbappe is not affected

Karim Benzema won his fifth Champions League trophy on Saturday night.

The Real Madrid talisman was expected to pair up with Kylian Mbappe in the summer until the later chose to extend his stay at the French capital.

Mbappe was heavily linked with Real Madrid last summer and a free transfer was on the cards but the 23-year-old snubbed them to stay at PSG for another two years.

Apparently, Real Madrid were furious with this decision but Karim Benzema has played down the suggestions of a feud that could affect their relationship.

‘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, he has a lot of responsibilities.

‘We will enjoy playing together in the national team. Everyone makes their own choices.’

He added: ‘Real Madrid are Real Madrid, I’m not disappointed. We are good friends, it won’t affect our relationship.’
