Karim Djaziri, the agent of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, has confirmed the news – revealed by Diario AS on 21 August – that the Frenchman is in talks over a new deal at the La Liga outfit.
“A new three-year contract is being worked on,” Djaziri told French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche. “The discussions are taking place calmly, without deadlines. Karim could well end his career at Real Madrid, the club of his dreams.”
Djaziri also talked about recent speculation suggesting the 25-year-old could be on his way to Premier League side Arsenal. "We cannot fight against rumours, but I assure you that Karim will not go to Arsenal. There hasn’t been any contact.”
Discussing the effect Gareth Bale’s possible arrival at Madrid could have on Benzema, he remained positive: “It won’t pose a threat. Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale will play on the wings and Karim will be at centre-forward.”
