Man United yearn for Real Madrid superstar to join blockbuster duo in sensational overhaul


It just gets better and better for the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern who have watched eagerly in wide eyed wonderment as sensational developments continue to unfold at Old Trafford. 

With Jose Mourinho and perhaps Zlatan Ibrahimovic nearing moves to the Theatre of Dreams, the dark days of Louis van Gaal and David Moyes are increasingly fading into the memory, rather painfully etched across the club’s face.

Further joyous news for the Red Devils faithful has come in the shape of a report from the Independent.

It claims that the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ has lined up Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema as a priority target upon his seismic arrival in Manchester.

The Frenchman has been strongly linked with Arsenal for a number of years, though has always remained in the Spanish capital despite overtures from these isles.

However, the 28-year old has been dogged by personal issues in recent months and worked as a regular under the Portuguese during his tenure in charge of Los Blancos. 

The former Inter Milan and Chelsea coach is understood to view the French international as an ideal striker for his revolution at Old Trafford, particularly with skipper Wayne Rooney transforming into a central midfielder recently.

Would a partnership of Benzema and Ibrahimovic win Man United the league?
