Having sold Mario Balotelli to AC Milan there is perhaps a chance that Roberto Mancini would be looking to bring in another attacking option but would the Man City boss splash out such a big fee for a new striker given that he has the likes of Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko to call upon, not to mention young talent John Guidetti.
Benzema has seemingly convinced Jose Mourinho of his worth, edging out Argentine Gonzalo Higuain for the starting spot in Real Madrid’s attack.
The former Lyon man had an excellent campaign last term scoring 32 goals from 52 appearances in all competitions but has been slightly off form in the goal-scoring department this season scoring 12 from 32 matches.
One would imagine that any move of this magnitude would only occur if Mancini were to lose another of his strikers.
