Real Madrid will accept £50m Arsenal bid for Karim Benzema

Emirates Stadium side told to fork out club record sum for Bernabeu star.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to accept an offer of £50m for Arsenal target Karim Benzema according to The Daily Telegraph.

Arsene Wenger has been linked with an interest in Benzema dating all the way back to when the 27-year-old first emerged as a prodigious talent at Lyon and many reports this summer suggest that Arsenal are closer than ever to securing a deal to bring in the French international.

Newly appointed Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez is open to using either Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo in a central striking role and as such Benzema’s place in the side’s starting eleven could be under threat.
