Wow this could be the shock of the transfer window! On the day that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns to the field for Borussia Dortmund showing that Arsenal have failed to reach an agreement with the Bundesliga side, it has now been revealed that the Gunners are now in talks with Real Madrid to sign Karim Benzema.
The report in DiarioGol says that Zinedine Zidane is on his way out of Madrid, especially after getting knocked out of the Copa Del Rey by Leganes, and it is possible that the legendary midfielder could be the France manager after this summer’s World Cup. When Benzema was asked if this worried him, the striker has apparently said to his friends: “Concerns? Any? No, I’m going with Zidane.”
The report goes on… On the sidelines, his immediate step points to London: as Diario Gol has learned, the player’s agreement with his compatriot/friend, Arsène Wenger, who wants him at Arsenal next summer, is total. The only problem is the figures of the transfer: the club ‘gunner’ does not exceed 40 million between fixed and variable Karim to maintain the cache. While Real Madrid requires a minimum of 60 ‘kilos’ [millions].
I know that no transfer window would be complete without Arsenal being linked Benzema, but could it really be happening this time?
