Speculation, recently, linked Manchester United with a move for the Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

The speculation was partly based on the supposition that Real Madrid might be tempted to part with the French striker to smooth over the potential transfer of David De Gea to the Spanish giants.

Well it appears that any move for Benzema is a load of old hog-wash.

His agent, Karim Djaziri, has spoken to the media and confirmed that his client has every intention of finishing his career at the Bernabeu with Djaziri remarking,

“What is Karim going to do in Manchester? He`s happy in Madrid and doesn`t want to leave. He would only leave if Real told him he was surplus to requirements, because he isn`t going to leave of his own accord. He wants to retire there.”

Well it looks like that was another red herring sold to us by the tabloid media!
