Benzema Pato swap deal dismissed
Wednesday 07 April 2010
The agent of Real Madrid's France international striker Karim Benzema has rubbished rumours linking his client with a summer move to AC Milan.
The 22-year-old was reported to be being lined up as a target for the Rossoneri after limited first-team opportunities at the Bernabeu, but talk of a swap deal involving Alexandre Pato have been dismissed.
Agent Karim Djaziri told calciomercato.it: "I have not read any of these rumours. The only thing I can say is that Karim is very happy at Real Madrid.
"I have not heard anything about this and I don't usually pay attention to transfer rumours.
"I want to underline that Benzema is happy where he is."
Benzema has scored eight times in 24 league and European outings for Real since his big-money summer transfer from Lyon.
