Real Madrid chasing “The Wonder Kid” Karim Benzema
Spanish newspaper “AS” claims that Real Madrid will sign French striker, Karim Benzema, when the transfer window re-opens in January.
The price? 50m euros demanded by Lyon, the club where Benzema plays. The negotiator? Jean Michel Aulas, Lyon’s supreme, a guy who is tough and hard to negotiate with. He is known to be a man who get what he wants, the way he wants, thanks to the super-expensive buy-out clauses he ties his players with.
We signed Diarra from Lyon in 2006 for 26m euros, the price he demanded. So this means, it won’t be easy to sign the French striker who says:
“If I convince my president, playing in Madrid would be possible.“
On the other hand, Real are full of cash at the moment. Recent reports suggest that Mijatovic has 140m euros in his pocket to do some shopping. But Ithink50m euros for Benzema is a lot of money and let me tell you, he is worth that money. No wonder, Manchester United, Barcelona and Ac Milan are gunning for him.
He is 20 years old and looks like a good striker, no, looks like great striker. He has a good physical shape, a winning mentality and everything that makes him a good option for us, but once again 50m euros is a lot of money for a 20 year old, but this 20 yo kids name is BENZEMA, so I think the pricetagisjustified.
