It's Official: Benzema Is Going To Madrid

Olympique Lyon confirmed that they reached an agreement with Real Madrid about the transfer of Karim Benzema for a fee of 35m euros which may eventually rise to 41m euros.

The statement claims that Benzema asked Lyon to be allowed to leave as he was keen to be part of Real Madrid's new Galactico project and the club granted his wish after a little negotiation.

Well, if he was really a transfer target for Fergie then he must be disappointed - but I guess he'll be over it soon and turn his attention towards others.

Not many top class strikers available to be honest. The only ones I can think of are Eto'o, Aguero, Zlatan, Villa and Adebayor. They could also be described as Too Greedy, Too Pricey, Too Hyped, Too Picky and Too Crap. After those guys anyone else just a gamble - Fabiano, Huntelaar, Owen, Berg, Gignac, Vucinic, Rossi, Pandev, Trezeguet. Personally, I'd go for Berg. Has all the attributes we're looking for even though he doesn't have much experience at the top level. But hey, who knows how any of those guys would adapt to the prem. Better to sign him now while he's cheap. Not a fan of Gignac though! No matter how many more goals he scored than Benzema.

The only good players signing for Manchester clubs this window will be going to Eastlands. Manyoo have had their day and from here on in it's going to be downhill. Fergie will have to retire on a low -- as you bring in someone with more flair, imagination and get up and go. Someone like Sam Allardyce.

I tell you what sindbad, if you guys get Eto'o - fair play. Until then Tevez and Santa Cruz are just a poor mans Rooney and Berba!

Sindbad - There he is! The only good players will be signing for Man City!? Hahaha you think if we are in for the same players you want, they'll choose you? Why? So they can be part of a project that no one knows how it'll turn out or they'll join a team rivalling with Madrid as biggest and most prestigious? All the players going to sh1-tty do not interest us and lucky for you. We've had our day? Don't be stpuid, we've lost better players in the past and have still moved on and this will be no different. But keep telling yourself that, it's rather amusing!

I really don't think Benzema was Fergie's first choice as he would've acted a while ago considering Benzema's rather reasonable fee! But I know everyone will be going on about how we were rejected and we're losing all our targets! Nonsense, Benzema is the only player we've been correctly linked with and we never put in a bid so how could he reject us? Ribery? Its all paper reports and journalists just looking for something to write. Douglas Costa and Valencia are the only players we actually put in bids for and we got one. Not forgetting that Real was also in for Valencia!

You've got Berbatov and Rooney, and you're still coached by the best manager in the world. Even without a big name signing, you'll be fine.

Don't get me wrong, I'll be rooting against you every step of the way, but you'll be fine.
