Real Madrid ready to sell Benzema to Arsenal, Chelsea or Man Utd?

Posted on October 07, 2013 by admin

There are media reports suggesting that Real Madrid are preparing to sell the French international striker Karim Benzema, and it could happen as soon as January if the below par front man does not start to buck his ideas up quickly. It seems like the Premier League in England could be his destination, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all keen on his services.

The club are so keen to be rid of misfiring Benzema that they are willing to take a loss on him, according to The Mirror. He cost Madrid 35 million euros when he was signed from the French Ligue 1 club Lyon in the summer of 2009, but the story is that he would they would release him for only £17 million, which is not much more than 20 million euros.

Both Ancelotti and Perez put a lot of faith in Benzema for this season, selling Higuain and only bringing through Morata and Jese from the youth system. They effectively said, here you go Karim, we trust you to be the number one and get the goals we need, and it is not happening.

Arsenal could be the favourites, because they have just one fir front line striker, and that is Benzema’s international team mate Olivier Giroud. Arsenal nearly signed Higuain in the summer so could well be in the market come January. Former Madrid boss Mourinho is now at Chelsea, and he knows all about Benzema and he needs a striker. Manchester United are also believed to be preparing to spend significant money in January.

Of course, there is some time to go before the transfer window opens, so Benzema has time to prove himself to the Bernabeu crowds, but he better get started soon. It is frustrating, because we know he has the quality.
