17 January 2009 02:23
The agent of in-demand Lyon striker Karim Benzema has denied rumours linking his client with an imminent move to Italian champions Internazionale. The 21-year-old France international has also been linked with Barcelona in recent times, despite having stated that he is more than happy to stay put until at least next summer. Benzema's representative, Karim Djaziri, told The Times: "I haven't spoken to any club. "There has been no contact from Inter, Barcelona or Manchester United. You would have to ask (Lyon president) Aulas about the offers he has received. "Karim has always said that he wants to go to a prestigious club that will allow him to win trophies and as long as that is the case, he could choose England, Italy or Spain."
