Karim Benzema staying with Real, says agent

The agent of France international striker Karim Benzema has categorically denied that the player is angling for a move away from the club, amid speculation about a transfer to Italian giants AC Milan. It had been reported that the seven time European champions were preparing a massive bid to bring the Frenchman to Italy, preparing a high pay package as well as the lure of regular first team football but his agent has stated that he knows nothing of this speculated bid.

Karim Djaziri, Benzema’s agent also stated that he had not been contacted by AC Milan officials about any kind of deal between the two parties and after the player was named in squad to travel to the United States of America for the Guinness International Champions Cup, Djaziri insists that there is no way that Karim Benzema will be leaving the club this summer at least.

According to the Frenchman’s agent, the striker still has a long term contract with the club and he is not seeking a move, especially after the appointment of a new manager which gives him the chance to prove himself once again to him and get into the first team on a regular basis. Speaking to reporters in Spain about a potential transfer to Milan, his agent stated that Benzema is staying with Madrid, adding that there is absolutely nothing with Milan and there is nothing more to say at this moment.

Karim Benzema joined the capital giants from French club Lyon for a massive fee back in 2009 and has been linked with a swap deal with Liverpool for Luis Suarez as well, as Madrid try and thrash out a deal for the Uruguayan striker. But nothing has been mentioned of that deal as well and it seems he will stay in Madrid.
