Man United might force a move to make Karim Benzema turn his back on Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal fans may be on the verge of getting their wish for Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema to join the club, but not before Man United get the last word in.
According to the Metro, Man United are keeping a very close eye on the ongoing discussions between Arsenal and Real Madrid with the possibility of making a last second bid for the scoring superstar very much on the table.
Though Louis van Gaal is reportedly not pursuing a deal for Benzema, he Old Trafford boss has openly expressed concern over his forwards’ inability to score – with Wayne Rooney being shut out in a third straight Premier League match.
A €35 million signing out of Lyon in 2009, Karim Benzema has been Real Madrid’s most consistent striker not-named-Ronaldo over the last six seasons.
Benzema has recorded double-digit league goals and 20+ total goals in each of the last five years and in seven of the last eight.
