Karim Benzema Speaks On Real Madrid Exit Rumours
Karim Benzema has commented on the rumours suggesting he is keen on leaving Real Madrid in the future.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu in the last few transfer windows, with reports claiming he could be on his way to the Premier League.
Benzema, though, insisted that he is planning on staying with Los Blancos for a very long time, as he feels he is part of a golden generation.
"It is the best club in the world, it is a pleasure and makes me proud,” he told BeIn France.
"The expectations are very big, and every season you start from scratch. You have to work to keep yourself at the highest level.
"If you are a starter here, you do not need to go elsewhere. I think we are in one of the best stages of Real Madrid's history.
"The team is very strong, and it's not just a matter of those who are usually the starters; the substitutes also make a difference."
The France international has made six appearances for the Spanish giants this season, scoring one goal and assisting in one more.
