Manchester United vice Executive chairman Ed Woodward has failed to successfully negotiate for yet another Manchester United target. This time the red devils are losing out on the signing of Karim Benzema to Arsenal.
There are claims by Emiliano Guilianelli per the Telegraph that the Gunners have concluded the required and necessary arrangements for Karim Benzema to have a hinge-free medical next week Monday.
It understood that Rafael Benitez has no faith in the 27-year-old French forward as a result of Madrid launching several bids for Dortmund’s Marco Reus. Upon the capture of Reus, Benitez will move the world player of the year Ronaldo to the centre of attack, using Reus on and bale on the wings and leaving Benzema on the bench.
It is believed that Arsenal can only dethrone or genuinely contend for the title this season if they bolster their attacking line that sees Sanchez as the only potent and reliable player upfront. Even the Legend of the club, Thierry Henry has called for an addition in the centre of attack for Arsenal.
According to the reports, Benzema may be unveiled on Monday before the Gunners take-on Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsene Wenger is the longest serving EPL manager; he has been heavily criticized by the fans due to his inactivity in the transfer market.
