Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema feels the club can cope with the departure of Gonzalo Higuain, after the striker joined Napoli this week. 

The Argentine became the third Real Madrid player to make the switch to the Italian club, amid specualtion of a new forward coming into the club. 

However the French international, who scored 21 goals last season, believes Spanish giants have more than enough options to cope with the loss of Higuain. 

"He's (Higuain) gone and I'm going to keep working as I have been doing," said the 25-year-old

"Now I want to prepare well. We have a good team. The theme of the signings (is) not my call.

"Morata and Jese are well prepared to do something positive. We'll see what happens. We must prepare for a great season," he added

Higuain netted 16 times in La Liga last term before his £34.5 million move to Napoli, and followed former teammates at the Bernabeu, Raul Albiol and Jose Callejon, as Rafael Benitez looks to challenge for the Serie A title this season.
