Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema says he isn’t threatened by reports linking the club with a move for Luis Suarez, reports Goal.com
The Liverpool striker is believed to be a target for Los Blancos, and could be a potential replacement for the Frenchman.
But Benzema has been quick to state that he has no plans to leave the Bernabeu, and believes that the arrival of Suarez would help him, not hinder his game time: I’m not under any special pressure about it [a potential move for Suarez],” Benzema told Marca.
“Suarez is a great player and has had a great season. If he comes, he’ll be a help.I hope to reach an agreement with Madrid. There is no other club like this one. Every year I feel better and only think about Real. I’m happy here with my family. My parents go where I go; they come to see me a lot. I went to Real Madrid to win La Decima. I dreamed all my life about that trophy and I’m very proud.”
Brendan Rodgers has always maintained that Liverpool would never sell Luis Suarez, who scored 31 league goals in just 33 appearances for the Reds this season, helping the Merseyside club push for the Premier League title, only to come just short.
The Uruguayan, who asked to join Arsenal last summer, eventually signed a new deal at Anfield back in December.
