- Benzema expected to leave Madrid
- Has been asked about his future
- Insists he's focused on Sunday's match
WHAT HAPPENED? Benzema has been expected to call time on his Real Madrid career after 14 years ahead of a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia. However, the Frenchman has been coy when asked about his future and the speculation surrounding a potential imminent departure from the Santiago Bernabeu.
WHAT THEY SAID: "Talking about my future? For what?" he told Marca. "What is said comes from the Internet. And the Internet is not reality. I have a game on Saturday, I train tomorrow, so right now I'm in Madrid."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Benzema has reportedly been offered a deal worth over €400 million (£346m/$439m) to move to the Middle East. The contract on offer would also see Benzema become an ambassador for Saudi Arabia's' 2030 World Cup bid.
