Arsenal target Benzema committed to Real Madrid

Karim Benzema insists he's not leaving Real Madrid.

Arsene Wenger was hoping to lure the 26-year-old to Arsenal this summer, while big-spending French champions PSG have also been monitoring his situation.

"The media can say what they want. I have a contract, I'm at Madrid and if I can stay all my life in Madrid, then I will," he said.

"I came here to win titles. If it depended on me, I always stay here. I do not want to go anywhere.

"My extension? I hope to reach an agreement with Real Madrid, there is no other club like this.

"Every year I feel better. I'm happy here with my family in Madrid."
