All summer the big transfer rumour was Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema going to Arsenal, now the French hit man has revealed that there was never any chance of him joining the gunners.
Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has rubbished reports suggesting he was considering a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
Benzema was continuously linked with a move to Arsenal during the window and Manchester United were said to be interested in the Frenchman before turning their attention to his international team-mate Anthony Martial.
However despite the Premier League duo’s interest, Benzema insists he was never going to leave the Spanish capital.
Benzema, speaking to Telefoot, said: ‘There was nothing in the talk of a transfer away from Madrid.
‘I’m happy at my current club, it’s the best in the world. I’ll continue to work here and be happy where I am.’
Considering that most Arsenal fans do not have confidence in Arsene Wenger’s transfer policy, it is doubtful that the majority thought Benzema was going to North London anyway.
