Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is keen to remain at the club but would not be against a move to Paris Saint-Germain before he retires.
The 25-year-old has scored only eight La Liga goals in 22 league appearances for Real this season, his latest in Saturday’s 5-2 win over Mallorca.
Speaking to Telefoot on Sunday, Benzema said he was unconcerned about his form for club and country and was not looking for an imminent transfer.
“Right now, I’m in the best team of the world,” the former Lyon man said.
“I’m taking things year by year. A transfer to Paris? Maybe later but not today.
“In a career, you’ll always find some hard times.
“But I feel very good. People criticise me but it’s part of my status. We have two strikers for each spot (at Real).
“I’m only happy when I play 90 minutes. I can play an hour and score with my only touch, I still won’t be happy.”
Benzema has attracted complaints in France for his recent lack of contribution to the national team, in whose colours he has failed to score in 839 minutes.
“It’s not a problem for me,” he said of his international goal-scoring record.
“Sure, I want to score a goal and I’ve had opportunities. I don’t know why I haven’t. That’s football – sometimes you get unlucky.”
