Benzema on target to break his Real Madrid goals record 0

Posted on February 18, 2014 by admin

Ever since Karim Benzema moved to Real Madrid from Lyon in the summer of 2009, he has had to share the central striking duties with Gonzalo Higuain. Until this season, that is, when Carlo Ancelotti decided it had to be one or the other to get the best from them.

For a while in the early stages of the season, the manager seemed to have made a big mistake, as the French striker struggled for goals, form and confidence, but all three are flowing now. Maybe the court case was preying on his mind or he just needed to get used to being the main man, but he is certainly producing the goods now.

When Real Madrid agreed to sell Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli in the summer transfer window, and also not replace him with another striker, the idea was to show Karim Benzema that Carlo Ancelotti and the Club had faith in his abilities. Also, by playing regularly, his form would improve while his confidence would grow at the same time.

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.

Is it time for Real Madrid to worry about Ancelotti? 0

When you take charge of a club like Real Madrid, there is a certain amount of pressure on your shoulders. Carlo Ancelotti would have been well aware of this when he took the job this summer, but he may not have realised just how tough his task would be, or how little time he would be given to sort things out.

Defeat to local rivals Atletico at the Bernabeu on Saturday, however, has brought everything to the boil. He was whistled by the Madrid home fans during the game, and the Spanish papers, especially the Madrid supporting ones AS and Marca, are not pulling their punches. Just like last season, Madrid have started the season slowly and this has allowed the two fierce rivals Barcelona and Atletico to pull away at the top of La Liga.

For the last few seasons, Real Madrid have used the two centre forwards Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain fairly equally. Their goal tallys were pretty similar and neither could seem to tie down the starting position. The situation did not really seem to be good for either striker and the club decided to act and sell one of them this summer, and the man to leave was Higuain.

There are other strikers at Madrid, but the main role was now Benzema’s, but his performances so far have drawn criticism from fans and the media alike. I think that is a bit harsh, because the whole team has taken it’s time to get going and adapt to the new coach and new signings.

Karim Benzema has cut a frustrated figure at Real Madrid recently. The French international striker was far from his best last season, although he still scored 20 goals in all competitions and provided 20 assists. His mannerisms and fitness when he returned for pre-season training was not very encouraging either, but that all seems to have changed now.

The 25-year old striker is now looking happy and sharp all of a sudden. He is obviously reacting well to the new manager Carlo Ancelotti, and he scored a good goal to win the friendly against PSG on Saturday. The squad is now in America to continue preparations for La Liga, and Benzema seems ready to prove that the club will not miss Ginzalo Higuain who signed for Rafa Benitez at Napoli at the weekend.

Real Madrid are having a very successful summer in the transfer market, so far at least. However, as Gonzalo Higuain is about to complete his 37 million euro transfer to the Serie A with Napoli and Rafa Benitez, there are some concerns at the club about the centre forward position.

Of course, there is always the goal machine that is Cristiano Ronaldo, although his best position is on the left of an attacking three. The reason Higuain was sold, as well as the fact he wanted to go, was because of his similarity to the French international striker Karim Benzema. For two seasons the players have had to share the striking duties and it has not really been good for either of them.

Real Madrid have a lot to do this season. Everyone from the club president Florentino Perez, through Carlo Ancelotti and down to the newest players and those hoping to come through the youth ranks is well aware what a big season this could be. It certainly started well.

Real Madrid travelled to England to play Bournemouth FC, a small club that has just gained promotion to the second tier of English football. A pretty much full ground was thoroughly entertained by the skills on show from La Liga, especially the mercurial Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid will sell Higuain BUT as part exchange for Suarez 1

It looks like Gonzalo Higuain could hold the key to Real Madrid’s hopes of the successful transfer of the Uruguayan international striker Luis Suarez. Madrid are hoping to persuade the striker’s current club Liverpool to accept an offer of around £20 million plus Higuain in exchange for Suarez.

Both striker’s have let it be known that they are keen for a move away from their current clubs this summer. Suarez has been linked with Arsenal, and Liverpool have already rejected one offer of £30 million. Arsenal are expected to up their offer, and Suarez would apparently accept the move to play in the Champions League, but he would prefer Madrid. Liverpool would also prefer not to sell Suarez to a Premier League rival, so there should be no problem there.

The manager and executives of Real Madrid have now got a tough decision to make about the future of the Argentinean international Gonzalo Higuain. The 25-year old striker is currently training with his Madrid team mates, but he has made it clear to Carlo Ancelotti that he has not changed his mind about wanting a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
