Karim Benzema’s agent Karim Djaziri has categorically ruled out a move for the French striker next summer as he is “very happy” at Real Madrid and does not want to leave.
The 29-year-old has spent the past eight years in the Spanish capital and put pen to paper on a new contract last month, potentially keeping him in place until 2021.
That has done little to stop murmurings of a possible switch to the Premier League in the future, however, with Arsenal regularly tipped to make a move for the former Lyon ace.
Djaziri has once again attempted to put an end to the speculation by telling Sky Sports News: “Benzema is very happy at Real Madrid. [He has] absolutely no intention of leaving the club.”
Last weekend’s opener against Getafe was Benzema’s first La Liga goal of the campaign, having also netted in the Supercopa de Espana win over Barcelona in August.
