Lyon chief Juninho: We dream of bringing back Real Madrid striker Benzema

Olympique Lyon chief Juninho admits they'd like to bring Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema back to the club.

Both OL president Jean Michel Aulas and Benzema's agents have opened the door to the French centre-forward closing out his career with his formative club.

“It is our dream that Karim ends with us," Juninho told RMC.

"It is the dream of everyone at Lyon, to bring him for two seasons to play the Champions League and to be our leader and scorer. We need his experience and it would help us win games."

Benzema left OL in 2008 for Real.
