United make 'tentative offer' for top u-turn target – reports

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid starlet Karim Benzema could make a sensational summer switch to Manchester United according to reports in Spain.

The 23-year-old French international striker is rumoured to be on his way out of the Bernabeu, in order to fund the arrival of Madrid's summer transfer target Sergio Aguero.

Los Blancos boss Jose Mourinho wants to sign La Liga rivals Atletico's star striker when the transfer window reopens in June, but needs to find extra money to fund a move for the in-demand Argentinian.

Spanish newspaper Marca understands that Morinho has told Real directors to invite bids for Benzema, with Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United said to have already made a tentative offer for his services.

The Red Devils' interest in Benzema stretches back a number of years, with Madrid having pipped Ferguson to the forward when he moved to the Bernabeu back in 2009.


But the former Lyon hitman could now make his long-awaited move to Old Trafford joining the Reds regime from next season.

Benzema's future has been uncertain for some time, and was first linked with the Real exit door upon the arrival of Mourinho.

More recently however, when it was speculated he could leave this summer, his agent refuted claims saying his client was happy in Spain.

But in a fresh u-turn, Benzema's departure once again looks to be only a matter of time with Manchester United ready to add to their title-winning squad as Ferguson and Co. aim to continue their domestic domination for years to come.
