Real Madrid says France striker Karim Benzema has agreed to extend his contract with the European champions to the end of the 2018-19 season.

The 26-year-old Benzema's previous contract expired in June 2015.

Benzema joined Madrid in 2009 from French club Lyon.

He has scored 111 goals in 235 games for Madrid, helping it to win the Champions League last season along with one Spanish league and two Copa del Rey titles.
