Karim Benzema 'dreams of Ballon d'Or'

Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema admits that he still harbours hopes of winning the Ballon d'Or.

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has revealed that he "dreams" of winning the coveted Ballon d'Or.

Benzema's club teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi have shared the accolade in the last seven years, but Benzema has claimed that he still harbours hopes of being recognised.

"Winning the Ballon d'Or remains one of my objectives," Benzema told BeIn Sports. "I am not going to lie about it. The Ballon d'Or is always in the back of my mind. Every player dreams of winning it.

"What I would need to do to win it? I would have to win a lot of titles and score 80 goals or so in one year!"

Since joining Real Madrid from Lyon in 2009, the 27-year-old has netted 130 goals in 273 games in Spain.
