Liverpool transfer rumours
According to the Daily Star, Liverpool may now be in with a chance of signing Karim Benzema for around £40m, though Paris Saint-Germain are also interested.
The French international played well at the Nou Camp, setting up Cristiano Ronaldo’s equaliser with a clever back-heel, but he remains an unpopular player at the Bernabeu.
Real are now ready to let him go as they plan some changes to their squad, and he could now doubt make a fine replacement for Suarez at Anfield.
