After snubbing Arsenal, Karim Benzema is suddenly “overrated”…
He wrote: “For all those clowns who want to make believe things at my fans”.
Or as the Star, Metro and Daily Telegraph would surely put it: “Benzema refuses to rule out buying second home at Arsenal!” Cavani was with Napoli at that time and switched to PSG the following summer for £55 million. The club reportedly knows any deal will be hard, but having spent months looking for a new striker, they’re not ready to give up just yet. The stutter of the much acclaimed Los Blancos sent a message to the Emirates that Karim Benzema is still needed more at Real than he is at Arsenal. That story has always been created every week. Former boss George Graham says the club are devoid of a presence in attack and must sign a forward capable of scoring 25 goals a season.
We are told Paris Saint-Germain does not want to sell Cavani, but doubts about his future remain and his name is suddenly being bandied around in the market.
The Uruguay global has cropped up on the Arsenal radar over the past two seasons, but the club is yet to launch a serious move for the 28-year-old and Wenger has maintained that he is happy with his current strike options.
Arsene Wenger is not getting too anxious by his side’s lack of goals at home.
And after returning to first-team training at Madrid’s Valdebebas training complex on Monday, Benzema has finally gone public to distance himself from reports of a possible transfer.
