Karim Benzema claims Manchester United have made several attempts to sign him.
Sir Alex Ferguson was said to be closing on a deal for the France international back in 2009, but lost out to Real Madrid who paid Lyon over £30million for his signature.
Benzema is growing in stature at the Spanish giants, and he isn’t surprised to read that United are once again being linked with the 24-year-old ace.
However, the forward also insists that he has never regretted his decision to join Real, and he has no plans to quit the Bernabeu for a fresh challenge anytime soon.
"The rumours about my future are common, every summer it's the same that I will be going to this club and that club," Benzema is quoted as saying in the Sun on Sunday.
“But I am very happy at Real Madrid and the thought about leaving has never crossed my mind. I know Manchester United have tried to sign me for the past three or four seasons.
"They and a number of other English clubs wanted me but could not agree terms with Lyon. Besides, I wanted to go to Spain and I can honestly say I have never regretted that decision.
"I'm still young and I have a contract at Madrid until 2015. I still want to achieve things at the club. I have had a taste of success after winning the Spanish title but I want more."
