Back training, Benzema takes to Twitter to bash “clowns” who think he’ll leave Real Madrid



Karim Benzema is the caliber striker needed at Arsenal, and several sources have implied that the Frenchman’s move from the Bernabeu to the Emirates is going to happen should the Gunners want to spend big dough.

The Real Madrid striker, however, is back to training with the Spanish club and took to Twitter on Monday to have a dig at the “clowns” who think he’s ready to depart Spain.

Benzema has been at Madrid since the 2009-10 season, and has scored 20 or more goals in each full season with the club. And his strike rate is even more impressive in the UEFA Champions League, where he’s scored 31 of his 133 RM goals despite the fact that only 56 of his 281 Madrid appearances have come in Europe.

Here you go, “clowns":

For all those clowns who want to make believe things at my fans. Here this is my home !
