Kylian Mbappe decided to stay in Paris Saint Germain and cancel to Real Madrid. Karim BenzemaLos Blancos striker, immediately made this satire?
The Mbappe transfer saga has finally been answered. The young French striker chose to stay at PSG until 2025, making Madrid – who have been eyeing him for a long time – biting his finger.
Previously, Mbappe was widely predicted to go to Madrid. In addition to his contract at PSG which is about to expire, Mbappe has been wanted by Los Blancos for a long time.
In the end, Mbappe chose to stay at PSG. Reportedly, a fantastic contract offer from Les Parisiens was the cause, where the 23-year-old player was contracted with a salary of 100 million Euros per year plus was given the authority to be involved in team decisions.
Benzema reportedly responded to the cancellation of Mbappe’s transfer to Madrid, as reported by Sportbible. The senior French striker made an upload, which was judged to be satirizing Mbappe.
On his Instagram account, Karim Benzema uploaded a photo of rapper Tupac Shakur. Interestingly, Tupac’s photo is considered to depict a betrayal.
In the photo, Tupac is seen shaking hands with actor Steve Baldwin. But if you pay attention, there is a figure behind Tupac with sharp eyes. The man was said to be a friend of Tupac’s treachery, until the rapper was murdered.
The photo was later widely associated with Benzema, who felt betrayed by Mbappe. Understandably, the two are quite close in the French national team, and Benzema had hoped that his juniors would follow him to the Santiago Bernabeu.
In fact, Kylian Mbappe was previously projected to be the successor to Karim Benzema at Real Madrid. However, the cancellation of the transfer made it not happen.
