The 27-year-old’s agent recently confirmed that Benzema would indeed be staying at Real Madrid this summer, saying, “Karim is very happy at Real Madrid and he will be a Real Madrid player by the end of this transfer window, 1,000 per cent. Karim is not looking to move anywhere this summer.”
However, the player has obviously taken matters into his own hands.
That’s that then.
