Karim Benzema admitted he had done all he could with Real Madrid this season to make himself favourite for the Ballon d'Or after helping the Spanish giants beat Liverpool 1-0 in Saturday's Champions League final in Paris.
Benzema did not score in the final on Saturday but the Frenchman finished as the Champions League's top scorer with 15 including 10 in the knockout rounds.
"Now I will join up with the national team but I don't think I can do much more with my club. "We will see what happens, but in any case I am proud of what I have done."
Benzema will join up with the France squad for a series of UEFA Nations League games in June after finishing the season with 44 goals altogether for Real.
