Benzema has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, however the Red Devils are confident of completing the transfer of the France international, Metro reports.

Benzema has been a long-time Manchester United target and he is believed to be number one on the club’s transfer wishlist this summer following the departure of Radamel Falcao back to Monaco following the end of his disappointing one-year loan stint at Old Trafford.
