Real Madrid manager, Rafael Benitez has rebuffed claims that striker Karim Benzema will join English side, Arsenal Fc. Benitez says he believes the striker has no reason to leave the club as he is very happy with him and would love to keep him at the club.
“Benzema, I think, is going to stay with us,” he told reporters ahead of his side’s Audi Cup semi-final clash with Tottenham. “I am very happy with him. I have no reason to think he will go.”
The Spanish coach is happy with the squad he has got but believes more signings will be made as they look to improve on last season, in which they lost out on La Liga, Champions League and Copa del Rey to Barcelona, though he refused to comment on the potential signing of David De Gea from Manchester United.
“I said before that Madrid have signed some players and have a great squad, but I aim to improve the team and to be as competitive as we have always been. I have said in five press conferences that I do not want to talk about players of other teams. We have very good goalkeepers in Keylor Navas and Kiko Casilla.”
