Benzema JoseManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been left open mouthed by comments made by a star striker, although their disappointed to see he didn’t go as far as opening the door to a transfer.

Marca quotes Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema as discussing his ‘special’ relationship with Jose Mourinho, who formerly managed the French international during his two-year stint at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Benzema, who has been part of the side to win two Champions League trophies in three years, has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, although he revealed he aims to retire in the Spanish capital.

‘Mou was something special. It did not go well at first, then better, with ups and downs. I’m not the same player now as then I was younger. But hey, no club makes me dream like Real Madrid.’

‘I always say I’m at the best club in the world, with the stadium, the fans, with a very demanding level of playing, with the best players in the world,’

‘Away from here, I don’t know where to go really. I do not look to leave for another team. This is the top. There are other clubs that give a lot of money to play with them, but I am not like that.

‘I like football and here is the best.’
