Manchester United fans are chanting United songs at the top of their voices here inside the Football Transfer Tavern after seeing the news from the Guardian – with the publication claiming that the Red Devils are keeping tabs on the situation of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
The 27-year-old striker is one of the most clinical forwards in world football and it could turn out to be a real coup for Louis van Gaal’s men, however Arsenal are also eyeing a move for the France international.
The publication suggests that a fee in the region of £40 million will be enough to prize the striker away from the Bernabeu, but whether either United or Arsenal will cough up such a sum remains to be seen.
As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips, Benzema is without doubt one of the best strikers in the game, and if United could seal a deal for the Frenchman, it would turn the club into real Premier League title contenders again.
