Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Lyon to sign Karim Benzema, according to the player's agent.

Widespread reports in Spain and France have suggested Real are closing in on the signature of the French international.

Benzema's future has been the subject of intense speculation for the last few weeks, with Manchester United also credited with an interest in the striker.

However, it appears Real have won the race for Benzema's signature after agreeing a deal in the region of €35 million with Lyon.

Benzema's agent, Karim Djaziri, has told French radio that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs and that only personal terms and a medical need to be completed to see the move go through.

If Benzema makes the move to El Santiago Bernabeu he will become Los Merengues' fourth big-money arrival of the summer.
