BENZEMA STAYING AT REAL
The striker of Real Madrid, Karim Benzema, has made it clear that he is not going to join Manchester United.
There have been speculations in the last couple of weeks that Benzema is on the radar of the new United manager David Moyes and he might be moving to England this summer. But, those speculations have been denied by the 25 years old French striker.
Talking to the correspondent of a Spanish newspaper, Benzema said, “I am not planning to make a move this summer. I will continue playing for Real Madrid. I have no reason to leave at the moment. I am quite happy playing for them.”
The performance of Real Madrid wasn’t that good in the last season. They didn’t win even a single title in the entire season. They finished the La Liga season at no. 2 with 85 points in 38 matches. They remained 15 points behind the title winners Barcelona.
Real Madrid couldn’t do well in the Champions League either. They were knocked out of the semi finals by the German club Borussia Dortmund. They lost the first leg by a huge margin of 1-4. Although, they bounced back to win the return leg by 2-0, but, that was not enough to wipe out the deficit.
Real Madrid lost the final of Copa Del Rey as well. They got beaten by the arch-rivals Atletico Madrid by 1-2.
When asked about the performance of Real Madrid in the last season, Benzema said, “It was not the best of the seasons for us. In big matches, we couldn’t do well under pressure and let the supporters down. But, that’s life. It can’t go our way every season. I just want the fans to keep backing us. We will bounce back hard next season.”
