Italian super agent Enzo Bronzetti regards Real Madrid as favourites for Olympique Lyon star Karim Benzema.

Bronzetti, who has close ties with both Real and Barcelona, said last night: "I was in Lyon to view him closely - he is a fantastic player. I would love to see him in Italy, but the real problem is that It takes a lot of money to bring him to our country.

"In Europe, I believe that there is only one club that can afford such a high figure. Of course this club is Real Madrid."
