French footballer Karim Benzema will face a trial in the event of extortion by national teammate Matthieu Valbuen. This was stated by the prosecutor in Versailles on Thursday.

      Benzema suspects that he persuaded Valbuena to pay money to blackmailers who were supposed to have a compromising personal video on him. Player Real Madrid denies the charges.

The scandal hit the French national team in 2015, and Benzema has not joined "Les Bleus" since. He played 81 duels for France during his career and scored 27 goals. The AP agency informed about it.
