According to this source, Sir Alex continues to hunt this hugely talented French international.
Manchester United are continuing their interest in Olympique Lyon star Karim Benzema.
Both Sport and France Football reports that United boss Sir Alex Ferguson recently met with Benzema’s father.
Benzema, 20, has a five-year contract with Lyon and United’s interest was confirmed by his agent this week. (tribalfootball.com)
Karim Benzema has astonishing talent and, sooner rather than later, he will leave the French league. Not least because he has already won the title in his hometown club four times, and he is still yet to turn 21! He has made claims that he wants to take Lyon as far as they can go, and cited an interest in mounting a very real challenge for the Champions League, but I simply don’t see Claude Puel’s side managing that feat any time soon.
The £40m-rated finisher is lethal to say the least, managing an incredible 26 goals in 38 league starts as well as a healthy raft of goals in the Champions League, which shows that he can perform at the highest level. I think it’s fair to say that he is one of the best in the world today, and Sir Alex is right to keep monitoring the situation, as I can’t see Karim still being at Lyon a year from now.
Do Manchester United fans think that Fergie should make a move for the French international?
