Arsenal punters here in the Transfer Tavern are still in a jubilant mood after their comprehensive 3-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, and the news flooding in from Metro is making them even more excited!
The publication is citing quotes from Spanish publication AS which is saying that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is ‘fed up’ with being substituted by Madrid boss Rafa Benitez, and this has subsequently put Arsenal on alert, according to Metro.
Now, our regular Gooners enjoying a pint of the Transfer Tavern’s finest ale have learned not to get too excited about anything linking the club with Benzema, as they spent all summer getting excited only to be let down the next day!
Our landlord here in the Tavern is echoing the sentiment of the regular Arsenal fans, and feels that nobody connected to the north London club should be getting excited, as a deal for Benzema probably isn’t going to happen anytime soon!
Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Could you envisage seeing Benzema in a Arsenal shirt? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
