Benzema content with Lyon

05 Jun 2009 - 11:58:08

Deposed former French champions Lyon remain hopeful of keeping star striker Karim Benzema at the club this summer.

The 21-year-old France international is rumoured to be a target for the likes of Juventus, Manchester United and even Barcelona, but Benzema is content to stay with Lyon for the time being.

He told L'Equipe: "I am 21 years old and I will have time to play for another club.

"The clubs are going to carry on calling, everyone is looking for forwards, but I am fine at Lyon.

"If there is a huge offer and the chairman tells me I have to go, I would probably leave. But I will not go and see him to ask to leave."

Chairman Jean-Michel Aulas added in Le Dauphine Libere: "He said he wants to stay and I don't want to sell.

"However, Kaka should have not left AC Milan and he will join Real Madrid.

"I am relaxed, but I won't say Karim is untransferable."
