Karim Benzema’s agent denies AC Milan switch talk


Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema will not be moving to AC Milan this summer, his agent has said.

The French striker found himself out in the cold for much of last season, making just 19 starts in the League and 30 starts in all competitions.

Despite the lack of minutes on the pitch, he still managed to contribute 12 goals and 13 assists – leading to interest from some the biggest clubs in Europe.

The 25-year-old, who has played for Los Blancos for the last four years, was subject of interest from Juventus earlier on in the summer, and is now attracting attention for their Seria A rivals.

But Karim Djaziri told Tutto Mercato his client wants to focus on the new season at the Santiago Bernabeu and enjoy a long career in the Spanish capital.

“He is staying in Madrid. There is nothing with regards to the Milan talk and I have nothing to say,” he stated.

Benzema has scored 15 goals in 58 appearances for the French national team.
