Benzema big winner as Mourinho takes charge at Real Madrid
Karim Benzema is set to be the big winner from the arrival of Jose Mourinho as new Real Madrid coach. AS says Mourinho is a huge fan of the Frenchman and convinced he can help him reach his potential at Real.
Benzema has been linked with a switch to Manchester United, but Mourinho sees the youngster as his 'project' and will give the forward every chance to establish himself as a world star next season.
The Special One's backing of Benzema could mean trouble for Gonzalo Higuain, who is still to hear from the club about finalising marathon contract talks.
