The Benzema to Arsenal rumour looks to have been put to an end after the French striker took to his official account on Twitter to finally respond to his much speculated transfer.
27-year-old Benzema has been the subject of a mega money transfer to Arsenal in recent weeks, with reports just 48 hours ago claiming the former Lyon man was on his way to London for a medical, before completing a switch to north London.
Benzema in his message, reassured his fans of his commitment to the Los Blancos after he returned to training following a thigh problem he had some weeks back.

Madrid also, released a statement to suggest the player would not be leaving the Bernabue this summer.
A club statement read per Daily Star: “Real Madrid completed a recovery session five days ahead of their La Liga game against Betis, that will be played this Saturday at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“Benzema worked with the group during the first part of the training session when the players who started against Sporting trained at a lower intensity level.”
