Lyon president Aulas opens door to Real Madrid striker Benzema

Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas has opened the door to bringing Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema back to the club.

However, Aulas accepts given Benzema's current status at Real, any deal soon is unlikely.

He said, "Karim, it would be possible.

"We had discussed this with (Benzema's agent) Karim Djaziri last year. Meanwhile, there have been a number of changes to Real Madrid. He has a status that is immense. In addition, he is one of the best French players of course.

"So that is not possible at the moment. But if tomorrow or the day after tomorrow there is a possibility to bring back Karim ... (sports director) Juninho said it and in general, when Juninho says things, he does not mess about. I do not say right and wrong."
