Benzema has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils, but the striker’s agent quashed rumours of a Premier League move, saying the France international was happy at the Bernabeu.
“What is Karim going to do in Manchester? He’s happy in Madrid. He doesn’t want to leave,” Karim Djaziri told The Sun.
“Benzema would only leave if Real Madrid told him he was surplus to requirements, because he isn’t going to leave of his own accord.
“He wants to retire at Real Madrid.”
Both Manchester United and Arsenal were believed to be monitoring Benzema’s situation, but it now seems the 27-year-old is destined to remain with the Spanish giants for another season at least.
Real Madrid have been linked with Manchester City star Sergio Aguero, and it is believed his signing may force Benzema out of the club.
However, Aguero’s proposed move to the Bernabeu is looking increasingly unlikely meaning Benzema will remain in Madrid.
