Benzema Would Think About United Offer

Karim Benzema is intending to stay at Olympique Lyonnais for another year. That's the fact but there's also a silver lining for the Benzema fans: he might think about United's offer if Fergie made a bid.

'Karim is on holiday at the moment and he is not thinking of moving,' his agent said.

'He wants to stay in France for another year so that he can prepare for the World Cup and I think that Sir Alex knows this.

'Perhaps he wants to make an offer to Lyon. If that happens, then Karim will think about it, but as things stand, Karim wants to stay with Lyon for another year.'


So, it's still unlikely that we will get him but Lyon would listen to offers and Benzema would think about a potential switch. It's worth a try, isn't it?

Exactly Zae,there is no harm in putting an offer on the table.Yes it does look unlikely but not impossible,at worst he will reject the offer what else.

Its been a very strange summer for most of the top clubs,leaving real circus aside,hardly any big clubs have made a move this summer.Hopefully things will get better for utd atleast.

we should have completed the valencia deal by now but it hasn't happened yet but on a brighter note it looks like lyon are in the market for either lisandro lopez or hoarau,there is a bit of a problem in the price of those players,may be we could help them out with a decent bid for benzema.This is the time,c'mon utd!!!!

abmtd, apparently the Valencia deal won't go through until we recieve the money from the Ronaldo deal (i.e. the end of June) so don't worry yet. I think Benzema could be on the way as Lyon do seem to be seeking replacements. I think we just need to find a price that they will accept.
