The Daily Express has certainly attracted a huge amount of interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it seems that Real Madrid may well be willing to listen to offers for Karim Benzema.
That, as our landlord notes, means that not only will Arsenal and Liverpool be returning to sniff around the French forward but Manchester United will also be considering a swoop with the future of Radamel Falcao increasingly uncertain.
Benzema is enjoying one of his best seasons in recent memory and has been a massive part of Real Madrid’s recent success with Los Blancos climbing to the top of the La Liga table.
A move for Benzema would cost in the region of £40 million and that is certainly slightly less than the fee either Edinson Cavani or Falcao would command.
However, the competition for the French international could well drive the price up.
Manchester United fans. Is Benzema someone that you would consider bringing to the club or would you prefer handing a permanent deal to Falcao who made his comeback this weekend? Let us know your thoughts below.
