Louis van Gaal has seemingly identified the striker position as one of the many areas that United need to strengthen this summer, and the Iron Tulip looks intent on bringing Karim Benzema to Old Trafford, according to reports.
It is thought that a bid of around £38million would persuade Madrid to part with their main striker, and that’d leave United in a position to negotiate personal terms with the 27-year old.
Whilst United face competition for his signature from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal, club officials say they are confident they can seal a deal for the striker before the start of next season.
Karim Benzema would be a dream signing. Although Wayne Rooney has proven his worth as a striker we need that 20-goal-a-season man and the Frenchman is certainly that. He is an out-and-out striker, and I’m sure Louis van Gaal can find a spot for Wayne Rooney elsewhere in the side.
Would Benzema be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
