Real Madrid captain, Karim Benzema wants to stay at the club, despite reports that he wants to accept a huge offer from Saudi Arabia.


There were speculations that Benzema has informed the LaLiga giants of his intention to sign a contract with Saudi champions Al-Ittihad.

However, Marca reports that the French striker has not told Madrid that he wants to leave.

Benzema’s current contract at the Bernabeu expires at the end of June, but it is understood he has agreed to trigger an option to extend his deal for another year.

The offer from Al-Ittihad is said to be worth €400 million (£346m/$439m) over two years and remains on the table.

The 35-year-old said on Thursday that all talk of a move has been purely speculation, telling reporters: “What is said comes from the Internet. And the Internet is not reality.”
