Arsenal fans have been dreaming of Karim Benzema in a Gunners shirt for months.
Those dreams looked liked they might be coming true this summer.
However, the man himself has broken Arsenal hearts with his latest tweet.
In fact, Benzema’s social media post, in which he seems to call those spreading transfer rumours “clowns”, will have sent metaphorical daggers into the hearts of Arsenal supporters.

Benzema has four years left to run on his current Real contract.
The La Liga giants are far from desperate to sell Benzema, who seems happy to stay, so Arsenal better start looking elsewhere.
Paris Saint-Germain duo Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi are both said to be on Arsene Wenger’s radar.
