The Spanish media continues to discuss the decision made by Kylian Mbappe to snub Real Madrid this past weekend and sign a contract extension until 2025 with Paris Saint-Germain.
One of the media outlets in Spain ontop of the Mbappe saga was El Chiringuito de Jugones. From memes to viral moments, the Spanish show was all over the 23-year-old, and their reporting insisted that the France international would join Los Blancos.
However, that didn’t occur, and the show’s host, Josep Pedrerol, spoke with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, asking if he thinks Mbappe betrayed him and the La Liga side.
“He’s staying in Paris. Each one has to be in his, on your thing. Focus on your thing. I think that if I want to do things with other players, don’t go wrong to say I have to do these things that I have to do because each one decides their future,” Benzema said.
“I’m not knowing if I’m calm here, and I even prepare for Saturday’s game [against Liverpool], and everyone does what they want, which is fine for them. You have learned that Madrid does not come like everyone else, but then he has his things, and now he is a Paris player, and that’s it.”
