EPL: Man United Moves To Sign Karim Benzema
English Premier League club, Manchester United, is reportedly making moves to sign Karim Benzema from Real Madrid.
Reports obtained by Naija News on Wednesday (today) claimed that the Red Devils are ready to release a mouthwatering contract offer to bring the French professional footballer to Old Trafford.
The Erik Ten Hag’s side will, however, have to battle for the 34-year-old striker with Paris Saint-Germain, who are also said to be interested in signing the player.
Benzema only has six months left of his current contract with Spanish La Liga giants after winning the coveted Ballon d’Or in October.
The French man who will soon become a free agent has netted 329 goals in 617 games across 13 seasons with the Spanish giants.
Unfortunately, Benzema was ruled out of participation in the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar due to injury.
However, United are looking to replace his former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, following his premature departure from the club.
Naija News reports that United and Ronaldo ended their contract terms last month in the aftermath of his explosive interview with Piers Morgan in which he seriously criticised the club and its manager, Erik ten Hag.
