Real Madrid to sell Benzema to Arsenal and sign Suarez from Liverpool

Posted on August 23, 2013 by admin

There have been lots of reports in the English media about two Real Madrid players, Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria being the subjects of strong transfer interest from the Premier League club Arsenal. Needless to say, Madrid will not want to sell either player at the minute, but if some key signings are brought into the Santiago Bernabeu in the next week or so, then the two players could well be on their way out.

We still do not know for sure whether the Tottenham star Gareth Bale will be coming to Madrid, although it seems very likely. His arrival would mean much fewer playing opportunities for the Argentinean Di Maria, and a move to Arsenal would help cover the huge cost of Bale.

The Benzema situation is more difficult. The sale of Higuain to Napoli has left Benzema as the first choice central striker, something the Frenchman is much happier with, but there are doubts about his ability to carry out the role at the very top level. The player being talked about as a possible replacement is the Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez.

Suarez was the subject of a £40 million bid by Arsenal not long ago, but Liverpool rejected it and declared that they would not sell to an English rival at any price. Suarez made it clear that he wanted to leave and play in the Champions League, and it is well known that he would love to play for Madrid.

Despite his disciplinary problems in England, Suarez is a fantastic player, arguably one of the top few strikers in the world. If Liverpool could be persuaded to sell to a foreign club, and I think they could, it would be a great move and the sale of Benzema to Arsenal would just about cover his price.
