Madrid - France striker Karim Benzema has ended any speculation about his future by signing a new contract with Real Madrid, the European champions announced on Wednesday.

A statement on the club's website read: "Real Madrid CF announce the extension of the contract linking Karim Benzema to the club until 30 June 2019, the next five seasons."

Benzema's existing deal had been due to expire in the summer of next year.

The 26-year-old striker, who performed well for France at the World Cup in Brazil, moved to the Spanish capital from Lyon in 2009.
