⚽ Zidane battling to convince Real Madrid to keep Benzema ⚽



Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane continues to fight the corner of Karim Benzema.


The French striker is regarded as a first-choice for Zidane, though president Florentino Perez has lost faith in the player and wants to move him on.


Indeed, several board members are urging Perez to cash in on the striker this summer as it’ll represent their last chance to get value for money from his sale.


And further strengthening their claim is the goalscoring record of captain Sergio Ramos.


The defender scored his seventh goal of the season in victory over Real Betis – which brings him level on goals with Benzema.
