Real Madrid striker Benzema admits Lyon return could happen

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema admits a return to Lyon could happen.

The 32-year-old was born in the French city and began training for the Ligue 1 giants from the age of 10, before making almost 150 appearances and clinching four Ligue 1 titles.

"Coming back to Lyon? It is often said to me. People know how attached I am to Lyon," Benzema told the French side's official TV channel.

"Coming back to Lyon immediately is not possible because I am in the best club in the world and I have a lot of things to do. But [I could] come back to Lyon and retire, why not?

"Anyway, I will come back to Lyon, whether as a footballer or not."
