Benzema agent confirms new Real Madrid contract; talks Lyon return

The agent of Karim Benzema has confirmed news of the Real Madrid striker signing a new deal.

Karim Djaziri has revealed the veteran centre-forward has penned terms to 2022.

"He has just extended his contract at Real until 2022, it's official," said the agent, who was also asked about his client's ties to former club Olympique Lyon.

Djaziri continued: "We don't know what we are going to do tomorrow, so after we'll see... What is certain is that he always had Lyon in his heart, even if he has his head at Real today.

"He is one of the few players who made it with his training club, and only one other club after that."
