Agent rejects Benzema exit rumors

BY foxsports • September 13, 2010

Karim Benzema's agent has played down speculation linking his client with a move away from Real Madrid.

Having found first-team football hard to come by since moving to Spain last summer, reports have suggested the striker could soon be leaving Real.

Rumours throughout the summer claimed he was attracting interest from England, with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City said to be keen.

Benzema eventually saw out the transfer window at the Bernabeu, though, in the hope that he could force his way into Jose Mourinho's plans.

That remains his stance at present, with no thought given to a possible switch elsewhere in the January transfer window.

With that in mind, his representative has sought to bring about an end to the ongoing speculation.

"The future of Karim Benzema will be at Real Madrid," Karim Djaziri told

"Are Juventus, Manchester United and Liverpool close to a deal? I categorically deny these rumours.

"He is a Real Madrid player and will remain a Real Madrid player."
