Karim Djaziri, the agent of striker Karim Benzema, has stressed that his client will not be leaving Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old revealed last week that Manchester United have tracked him for years, while Manchester City and Juventus are also believed to be interested in the prolific hitman.

Nevertheless, Benzema's representative has made it clear that a summer move is not an option for the attacker at this point.

"Benzema is not leaving Real Madrid," Djaziri stated to

Benzema has developed into a key player at Madrid since joining the Liga champions from Olympique Lyonnais in the summer of 2009. He has a contract with the Blancos side until June 2015.
