Breaking news on one of our network partner sites with Harry Hotspur pretty sensationally announcing that Karim Benzema will be in a Spurs shirt soon.
We caught up with the boy Hotspur and questioned him over this wild allegation late last night. ‘All indications are that this is kosher. Situations change in football deals as they do in life of course. But the source is impeccable and this deal stands up to scrutiny.’
We need something to replace the hoofs up to Crouch and cover for when Defoe and Pav get lost when looking for the goal. Keane – if he can be sold – won’t raise enough to buy a household name, so this deal would fit the bill.’
Benzema hasn’t had it all his own way since joining Real Madrid and his transfer out has been mooted endlessly. He hasn’t scored enough goals and this has got to raise an eyebrow or two amongst Spurs fans looking for that one special signing to rubber stamp their Champions League status.
