Karim Benzema has made the clearest indication yet that he will remain with Real Madrid next season. The France international has been heavily linked with a summer move to Arsenal but his latest comments suggest he will still be at the Santiago Bernabeu at least for the 2011/12 season.

"I do not think Real Madrid want to sell. (Jose) Mourinho is confident in me," he told Marca.

"Next season you will see the best from Benzema."

Benzema scored 15 La Liga goals in 33 appearances for Los Blancos this season - his second in Madrid since joining from Olympique Lyonnais in July 2009.
