Real Madrid to launch €90m bid to sign replacement for Arsenal-bound Benzema

Benzema exit to spark INCREDIBLE striker bid.

Real Madrid could seek to sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero in a stunning €90m deal before the end of the summer as Karim Benzema closes in on a move to Arsenal.

The Spanish giants will want to bring in a top class replacement for the £45m-rated Frenchman, who scored 22 goals in all competitions last season and who has long been a key player at the Bernabeu.

Still, according to Fichajes.net, it seems Real are ready to let the 27-year-old go if they can land long-term target Aguero, who is arguably an upgrade on Benzema.

The Argentine international has been at City since 2011, but also shone in La Liga for Real’s inner-city rivals Atletico Madrid prior to his move to the Premier League.
