Real Madrid star will not be joining Arsenal

Real Madrid Striker Karim Benzema

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema will not be joining Arsenal this summer with his agent confirming that his client will be staying in the Spanish capital, according to Sporting Life.

The Frenchman has been linked with a big money move to the Emirates in recent days as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been forced into making numerous bids as the fans are unhappy with the squad and lack of activity this summer.

Wenger has just one week left to secure at least four more players to appease supporters and build a side capable of finishing in the top four which appears to be the target.

Benzema’s agent Karim Djaziri has confirmed that his man will not be heading to North London this summer and is set to be a key player for Madrid.

“We can’t stop the rumours,” Djaziri has told French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.

“But I tell you: Karim will not go to Arsenal. It’s never been a question for him and no contact has been made.”

“He will stay at Madrid. The probable arrival of Gareth Bale at Real Madrid doesn’t threaten him at all. Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale will play on the wings and Karim in the centre.”
