On Wednesday, July 25th Spanish giants Real Madrid touched down on Los Angeles International Airport to launch their American pre-season tour with Mexican team Club America and MLS leaders LA Galaxy.
Among the players in attendance for these North American spectacles are Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, and Johnny Outlaw: Karim Benzema who likes his ladies young.
Last month the story broke out that Karim Benzema solicited sex from Zahia Dehar (now 18) when she was underage and is now under a judicial investigation.
Dehar squealed the story when she and 18 other ladies of the night were raided by police officials at Café Zaman, a brothel on the Champs Elysee in France.
Other notable players mentioned in the inquiry were fellow French internationals Franck Ribery, and Sidney Govou.
Ribery went as far as flying the young scarlet out to Munich, Germany, where he play for his club: Bayern Munich, and indulged in a night of purchased passion as part of his birthday celebration.
The age of consent in France is 15 years old. However, for prostitution, it's 18. Dehar was 16 when she serviced the three musketeers.
Fortunately for Benzema, this dark cloud has not affected his training as he will take part on Wednesday friendly against Club America in San Francisco's Candlestick Park. On Saturday, Los Galacticos take on the Galaxy at the historic Rosebowl, in Pasadena.Though time will tell if the three men will keep their places in the French National Team.
Roselyne Bachelot (Minister for Health and Sports) told the media:
"I respect what Laurent Blanc (the new French manager) will do. These men are innocent (until proven guilty) but it makes it very difficult if someone under investigation can be selected in the France team."
"I will not set out a process - I will simply say that there is the judiciary procedure on one side and the France team on another."
But in the meanwhile, fathers hide your daughters, Frenchy has hit LA and SF.
