Manchester United given HUGE boost in chase for £44m-rated star

Manchester United have been given a huge boost in their hunt for a goal-machine this summer as Real Madrid could be willing to let Karim Benzema leave, according to the Daily Star.

Benzema has been at Real Madrid since 2009 and has netted a staggering 134 goals in 279 games, which is all the more impressive as he has played each season with prolific goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 27-year-old Frenchman could be the perfect option for Louis Van Gaal given his vast experience of playing and scoring consistently at the top level.

The France international is valued at £44 million by and it is believed that Madrid would be willing to part with their star to reinvest in a younger goalscorer, with Arsenal also reportedly interested.

Benzema is reaching the peak of his career and so a move could be a good option for both parties. His style of play could be well suited to the Premier League as a striker who boasts a complete range of abilities.

As United look set to return to Champions League action next season his experience in the competition would be a great addition to the squad. Benzema has proved he can work well with big egos and the highest quality of players.

A move could also rejuvenate struggling United star Angel Di Maria’s career. The two were part of Madrid’s ‘La Decima’ (tenth European Cup triumph) and linking up once again could help Benzema make his decision.

Would Karim Benzema be the perfect forward for United to sign this summer?
