Karim Benzema has insisted that Real Madrid remains his “home” after laughing off suggestions that he would be leaving the club this summer.
Links between the France striker and Arsenal had refused to die down, despite Rafa Benitez's public protestations that he would be staying put, and the player has now all-but-ended the speculation, which he claims was instigated by “clowns”.
“For all those clowns who want to make believe things at my fans. Here this is my home! #HalaMadridYNadaMas,” he tweeted to his 2.85m followers on Monday, along with a photograph of himself after training on Monday [pictured, above].
Benzema missed Madrid's goalless draw at Sporting Gijon on Sunday with a thigh injury.
