The transfer window is right on the doorstep, and all the European heavyweights have set their eyes on top potential targets. Regardless of the clubs trying to hold onto their prized possessions, the elite powerhouses have already offered some staggering amounts of mint to the players.
With the young breed of players hoping to land a deal with any of the top clubs, Real Madrid’s experienced star man Karim Benzema reportedly wants a move away from Bernabeu this summer.
Benzema has been through a very difficult season with Real Madrid, netting only 17 goals from 42 games. The 29-year-old has struggled in attack alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, thereby failing to impress his boss, Zinedine Zidane, with some average performances of late.
The France international was booed in Saturday’s game, which Los Blancos won 2-1 by beating Valencia. As per the striker, he is said to be tired of what he regards to be an inequitable treatment from the club’s supporters. Ergo, the displeased striker has told his agent to listen to all offers for him this summer.
According to Spain’s news outlet Don Balon, the forward is determined to leave the Spanish capital this summer. The Frenchman has been repeatedly linked with a move to Arsenal in recent months, but contrary reports in Spain claim that he will be offered to Manchester United to sweeten any potential deal involving David de Gea.
Benzema’s current form may not be supporting his cause, but he is unquestionably one of the leading strikers in world football. And with the Madrid man fixed on leaving the club, some top teams would surely make an attempt to secure his services come summer.
