bale-benzema-real-madridManchester United and Arsenal’s lingering hopes of signing Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have been crushed by Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez.

Bale has long been linked with a move to Manchester United and, with Angel di Maria poised to leave Old Trafford for Paris St-Germain, fresh talk about a possible bid for the world’s most expensive player has re-emerged in the media.

It is a similar story with Benzema, with Arsenal the latest in a long line of reported suitors believed to be keen on the 27-year-old France international.

However, new Madrid boss Benitez is not expecting either forward to be leaving the club any time soon.

He told a press conference ahead of Tuesday’s Audi Cup clash against Tottenham in Munich: “Gareth is a huge player for us and I know that he’s happy.”

On speculation about Benzema, former Liverpool boss Benitez added: “My answer is that I think Benzema is going to stay with us. I’m very happy with him. There’s no reason to think that he’s going to go.”
