Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema responded to reports suggesting he'll be joining Cristiano Ronaldo in Serie A ahead of the new season.
According to Sky Italia journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, intermediary Ludovic Fattizzo and Benzema’s representatives held a meeting with coach Rino Gattuso and sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli at Milanello, AC Milan’s sporting centre, on Monday.
It was reported that the France international has agreed on a move to the Serie A after being deemed surplus to requirements at Los Blancos - but the player and his agent have since vehemently denied the reports.
"Di Marzio is a clown, who really makes us laugh with the lies he comes out with to boost his own fame," his agent Karim Djaziri wrote on Twitter.
Benzema also rejected Di Marzio's claims and also published a message on his Instagram account: "Di Marzio, it's you who needs to look for a new job, liar."
