Real Madrid striker Benzema rejects Liverpool: Not big enough for me!

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has rejected interest from Liverpool. The Daily Star Sunday says the Reds chief Brendan Rodgers 'chanced' an enquiry about the French ace, 26, a fortnight ago but was rebuffed - not by Madrid but by the player.

Real were prepared to listen to offers in excess of £35million after spending £65m on in James Rodriguez from Monaco.

The word back from Benzema's agents, however, left Liverpool smarting when the player indicated they were not on his elite wish-list for a move.
