Madrid confident Benzema will renew

Real Madrid are said to be confident about agreeing a new contract with striker Karim Benzema.

Marca adds however that there is no agreement between the two parties yet, although no problems are anticipated.

Benzema’s current deal expires in 2016 and his agent, Karim Djaziri, has reportedly told the Santiago Bernabeu hierarchy that there’ll be no chance of Benzema leaving in the near future.

Marca claims Benzema will eventually add another two years to his contract.

Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti has previously said he expects Benzema to sign a new deal.

“I think he’ll renew. The club is keen to do it and he’s happy in Madrid. There’ll be no problems,” the Italian told El Confidencial last week.

Benzema has also spoken positively of his situation in Madrid and suggested he would sign fresh terms soon.

“I’m fine here, I’m happy and I think only of Real Madrid. I have a contract and I’m very content in that sense,” the France international is quoted as saying recently.
