A dismal campaign by the reigning European champions means there will likely be wholesale changes in the summer.

Meanwhile, Benzema is mulling over mega-deals from the Chinese Super League. However, he would prefer a return to France — with Paris Saint-Germain potentially interested.
One of Zinedine Zidane’s primary obligations was to maintain the duo’s value throughout his tenure.
And, while Benzema has struggled in recent seasons, he would still attract a large offer from some of the biggest sides in Ligue 1.
