Lyon Want Benzema Back to the Club

Real Madrid president Karim Benzema who left the French club Olympique Lyon in 2009 is reportedly wanted back by the French side according to club Chief Jean-Michel Aulas.

The Los Blancos striker departed the French giants back in 2009 and has since gone on to play 341 games for the Spanish club, scoring 161 goals.

Real beat Manchester United to the Frenchman’s signature, paying £35m to secure his services, and he has since been prolific in La Liga, netting 161 goals for the club.

And, when asked a number of questions by Goal, Aulas conceded that, if he had the opportunity to purchase any player who had left Lyon, he would bring Benzema back.

The 67-year-old also praised the development of Samuel Umtiti, and admitted that he dreams of signing both Paul Pogba and Lionel Messi.
