Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez has reiterated that the club is not looking to sell any of its players.
A number of the club’s stars have been linked with other clubs, with Manchester United chasing Sergio Ramos all summer and Arsenal looking to Karim Benzema to solve their forward problems.
Following Madrid’s 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Audi cup, Benitez revealed that there would be no more transfers.
“As I mentioned with Karim, there’s a lot of speculation,” he told reporters. “I don’t care about any of it. I just want to concentrate on football, all of my players will be staying here.”
He also revealed why he benched Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, saying it was a challenge rotating the squad.
“It’s impossible to manage it symmetrically unless you have 22 players at the same level,” the coach continued. “The changes have been made in the best possible way with the group we have.”
