France striker Karim Benzema has revealed that Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson has been making attempts to sign him ‘for the past three or four seasons’. However, the 24-year-old hitman insists he is happy at Real Madrid and will not be leaving them anytime soon. Benzema told The Sun:
“The rumours about my future are common, every summer it’s the same that I will be going to this club and that club.
“But I am very happy at Real Madrid and the thought about leaving has never crossed my mind. I know Manchester United have tried to sign me for the past three or four seasons. When I was at Lyon they and a number of other English clubs wanted me but could not agree terms with Lyon. Besides, I wanted to go to Spain and I can honestly say I have never regretted that decision.
“I’m still young and I have a contract at Madrid until 2015. I still want to achieve things at the club. I have had a taste of success after winning the Spanish title but I want more.”
“I would never say never about coming to England and, to be honest, I have no real preference in terms of teams. But that is a long way in the future, not something I would even consider at the moment.”
