Metro seem to be doing their best to keep our punters entertained here in the Football Transfer Tavern and after claiming that Liverpool are readying themselves for a £40 million Karim Benzema swoop this summer, they have succeeded.
Reds fans are of course interested in that news with a world class forward in short supply at Anfield this term following Luis Suarez’s departure last summer.
Not only that but our punters also want to know just why Real Madrid are willing to sell a player who has scored 14 goals so far this season already and is having his best season yet in the white shirt of Los Blancos.
According to the publication, Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani and will use the £40 million from the sale of Benzema to facilitate that.
We think should a deal go through between Liverpool and Real Madrid in the summer, there may well be a fight for the signature of Cavani with The Mirror having also linked Manchester United and Arsenal to the Uruguayan international forward.
Liverpool fans. Do you fear that the club seem incapable of landing the very best talents in the game nowadays? Let us know your thoughts below.
