It wouldn’t be a proper transfer window without an Arsenal transfer rumour linking us with Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, and today the Daily Express has filled the gap in for us.
Just like last summer, they are saying that Arsene Wenger is willing to wait until the last day of the transfer window to get his man, as it will only be possible if Madrid get there wish to prise Robert Lewandowsi away from Bayern Munich. This will allow the media to bring out a new Benzema rumour every day until the windows shuts with the Frenchman still at Real Madrid as usual.
The fact is that there is absolutely zero chance of Bayern letting their genius hitman leave Germany, especially to a club that is a direct rival for the Champions League. As the Bayern technical director Michael Reschke said just a couple of weeks ago: Lewandowski will be at Bayern next season,” he said.
“I can tell you categorically that Lewandowski will remain a Bayern player.
“He has three years left on his contract, he is the best striker in the world and there is absolutely no possibility that he will be sold.”
I would like to back that up with my own declaration that Benzema will definitely not be at Arsenal next season, but the fact is that this won’t stop the rumours from continuing…..
