thumbnail Hello,

No truth in rumours of switch to England or Italy...

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema will not be leaving the Bernabeu in the near future, according to his agent, despite rumours linking him with moves to both England and Italy.

The French striker has found it hard to break into the Real first team since moving to Spain last season which have sparked reports that he may be sold by Jose Mourinho.

Throughout the summer there were rumours of moves to both Manchester United and Manchester City but Benzema remained in Madrid to try and force his way into the starting line-up.

The former Lyon man has, however, featured in Real's opening two fixtures of the season and according to the player's agent, he is not going anywhere.

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

"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."
