Mbappe opted against a move to Benzema’s Real Madrid earlier this month, despite the veteran striker personally looking to convince his international teammate to move to Madrid this summer.
Benzema opted not answer questions over Mbappe’s choice to remain at Paris Saint-Germain ahead of Los Blancos Champions League final win over Liverpool despite his rumoured frustration at the situation.
Mbappe is expected to start France’s competition opener against Denmark on June 3 but Benzema is set to start on the bench following an extended domestic season.
