Another Dig At Kylian Mbappe From Real Madrid As Isco Leaves The Club

Kylian Mbappe has really rattled Real Madrid, with another dig at the PSG forward seemingly aimed by departing Real star Isco.

Mbappe decided just over a week ago that he would be staying in his home city of Paris instead of moving to the Spanish capital, a decision that clearly annoyed those at the Bernabeu.

Karim Benzema seemed to be so annoyed he compared it to being betrayed and Luka Modric took a shot at the World Cup winner in the lead up to the Champions League final.

On Saturday, Real became European champions for the 14th time, as Thibaut Courtois' masterclass in goal, and Vinicius Junior's goal helped them beat Liverpool.

However, despite having plenty to celebrate, Real can't help but take shots at Mbappe and the latest comes from Isco, as he ends his team with the club.

Writing in his farewell message on Instagram, the 30-year-old wrote, "When I was in Malaga and I knew I had to go.

"Real Madrid knocked on my door and Real Madrid cannot and should not be told no, although there are always exceptions," adding a laughing and turtle emoji.

As well as the fact that not many players do turn down Real and Mbappe doing so is very recent, and very public, it's hardly a subtle dig from the former Malaga star.

On top of that, the man who rejected Los Blancos is also often compared to a turtle for his appearance, or at least a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, the best kind.

He has been presented with a mask of the Michaellango character in the past by his teammates at the Parc des Princes, so really there's not much else Isco could have been referring too.

In the wake of winning the Champions League it isn't the only time that Mbappe has been mentioned either, with the fans chanting about the former Monaco star during the trophy parade.

Imagine having the European champions on strings by simply extended your contract at the club you've been playing at for the past five years.

At least Isco got a nice goodbye to Real, where he'd been playing for nearly a decade, and the fans even gave Gareth Bale a fond farewell.

The Welshman has had an incredible time at the club since joining in 2009, helping them win five Champions League titles in that time, including their famous three in-a-row.

He hasn't always been well loved in the Spanish capital though, especially in the latter part of his time there, with criticism of how much he cares about the club.

On Sunday he was at least given a standing ovation by fans at the Bernabeu, for his services to the team, with his contract now having expired.
