Benzema has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Manchester United after a trophyless campaign with Real Madrid, but he insists that he doesn't harbour any thoughts of leaving the club.
"Of course I'm staying. I'm happy at Real Madrid and I'm not going to leave," he told Marca.
"I'm eager to win titles, but I think we all need to disconnect a bit."
The France international finished the season with 21 goals from 50 games - a tally that he feels summed up an underwhelming campaign.
"It wasn't a very good one. We didn't win the league, the Champions League or the Copa del Rey. For a club like Real Madrid, winning the Spanish Super Cup is not enough." he continued.
"It wasn't like the previous one. I finished last season with 30 goals and only managed 20 this time.
"Keep supporting us as always and next season we'll give our all and try to win domestic titles and of course the Champions League."
