When Karm Benzema made his way to Real Madrid, much was expected from the French International striker. After enjoying play for Ligue 1 club ‘Olympique Lyonnaies’, Benzema looked like he will be a great addition to Madrid but unfortunately hasn’t played to his expectations.
Not finding a sport on the first-team of Madrid, many rumors started to surface that Benzema will be making his way out of Madrid but his agent is stating otherwise.
“The future of Karim Benzema will be at Real Madrid” said Benzema’s agent to 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.”
It was been said throughout the summer that Benzema was picking up some interest from Manchester United and Manchester City but the striker decided to stay at Bernabeu where he hopes to find a more permanent role. Trying to fit into the plans of Jose Mourinho is no easy task and with the talent pool that is currently at Madrid, it will be tough for Benzema to find a more active role in the club. However, it won’t come easy as Madrid is currently flooded with talent.
Do you think that Benzema will be able to find a starting role at Madrid? Should Los Blancos use him as trading bait? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
