Reports are coming out of 'Metro' that the Benzema transfer is back on again. Reportedly Arsenal have now put in a bid of 46m and Real president, Perez, has finally sanctioned the move.
This can be tied in with what is being reported today in the press that Wenger has indeed been very active in the transfer market by reportedly bidding for both or either of Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich!
Can you imagine the impact and resonance such a transfer (of Benzema) will have on the Premier League, the Arsenal supporters but above all the Arsenal players who will now truly believe with substantially enhanced confidence that the title challenge is a very doable venture.
However I do not really believe such talk because it does not stand to logic.
Firstly Real will be left with only Ronaldo as a central striker who however will have no real cover in case of any forced absence from the team.
Secondly Benitez will have an array of options to choose from in the front positions choosing any combination of Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema and James Rodriguez. He is not likely to forgo such riches.
Lastly even if Real want to sell they have to get in a new world class striker. So who will that be? The only two that can match their requirements are Ibrahimovic and Aguero.
So let's all cheer for Ibra to Real (because Aguero is highly unlikely to be released by City).
If this transfer happens expect Benzema to sign for Arsenal on the last day of the transfer window....
