Karim Benzema’s agent Karim Djaziri is adamant the France international will be playing his football at Real Madrid next season.
It’s been a disappointing campaign for Los Blancos this term, made worse by the fact their arch rivals Barcelona wrapped up a historic treble with a 3-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday night.
There has been talk of an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu for striker Benzema over the last few weeks, with the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal linked with the Frenchman.
However Djaziri has strongly denied the rumours and insists Benzema is looking to finish his career in the Spanish capital.
He told Marca: “I haven’t met with any club in London. Not with United and not with anyone else. We haven’t held talks with anyone other than Real Madrid.
“What is Karim going to do in Manchester? He’s happy in Madrid. He doesn’t want to leave. Benzema would only leave if Real Madrid told him he was surplus to requirements, because he isn’t going to leave of his own accord.
“Karim wants to see out his contract. He wants to retire at Real Madrid.”
Real are 6.50 to win next season’s Champions League. Barcelona are 4.50 and Chelsea 9.00.
