Transfer: Modric, Benzema refuse joining Zidane at new club 

Benzema, Modric reject Zidane’s offer




Real Madrid superstars Karim Benzema and Luka Modric have turned down the chance to potentially join Zinedine Zidane at Juventus ahead of next season.

El Nacional reports that Zidane will replace Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus next season.

The Frenchman is currently on a sabbatical after leaving Real Madrid in 2021 but could be back to club management with Juventus a potential destination.

The former France international would like to have Benzema and Luka Modric with him at the Allianz Stadium.

The contract of the 35-year-old with Los Blancos expires in June and he is also a target for clubs in Saudi Arabia.

 According to the report, Zidane already knows that Benzema is not interested in a move to Juve. If the striker is to leave Los Merengues and remain in Europe it will either be in Ligue 1 or the Premier League.

Modric, on the other hand, will have his contract with Real Madrid also expire in June and the Croatian midfielder, who has been a mainstay in Los Blancos’ side since arriving from Tottenham in 2012, is also not interested in playing in Italy.
