Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are questioning their club’s targets after talkSPORT revealed they are willing to splash £40 million on Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
The Frenchman has been linked countlessly with a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea previously being linked.
But it is not a shock to hear he is tipped to join the Citizens as he has enjoyed another successful at the Bernabeu, as he has found the net 22 times in 44 appearances.
The 27-year-old has been on the radar of the Premier League’s biggest clubs since his days at Lyon but they missed out on his services after Madrid signed him.
If City miss out on Benzema then they could look to spend their £40m elsewhere, because they are far off the standard compared to the Premier League champions, Chelsea.
Palermo star Paulo Dybala has also been linked with City but the board at the Etihad would prefer to sign Benzema because not only is he a household name but he has also proved his worth consistently over the past few season.
