Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema admitted that he doesn’t mind if Los Blancos sign a striker this summer to ensure that there’s some competition for the number nine role.
The Frenchman has been in fine form for Madrid under Zidane, scoring each of the club’s last eight goals.
Benzema maintained that he will be focused on working hard and staying at Madrid as long as possible.
“It’s up to the club, I don’t mind,” Benzema responded when asked about whether Madrid should sign a No.9, Marca reports.
“I’m just focussed on my job on the pitch and how I can help the team.”
The Frenchman is confident of keeping his place in the team despite speculation of big arrivals, with a deal for Frankfurt hotshot Luka Jovic rumoured to be close.
“I’m going to stay at Madrid,” he added. “I’m at the best club in the world.”
Benzema also spoke about how Zinedine Zidane’s return has created a sense of positivity in the Madrid camp.
“Zidane’s return to the club means so much,” he added. “Everyone is so happy with him and we are looking forward to next season.”
