Lyon president angry at Benzema speculation

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is boiling hot at the endless speculation by the British press that Manchester United are certain to launch a multimillion dollar bid for their 20-year old French international striker Benzema. Aulas has hit out at the typical British tabloid section who keep in splashing such speculations which are often without any concrete material.

Lean-Michel Aulas says:

When Lyon, during the season, are interested in a player from another French club, everybody cries ‘scandal’. But when, a few days before playing Manchester United, I read here and there that Ferguson is going to make an offer for Benzema, is that not destabilisation?

True, but Aulas has indeed not got much experience of the British transfer speculations. He is only observing the tip of the iceberg. Mr. Aulas, you just wait till the summer when the entire British media circus will be camping their tent in Lyon!
