French superstar tells close friends he wants Man United move

Manchester United might have not won the premier league in the last six seasons or made so much impact in recent UEFA Champions League but Real Madrid forward, Karim Benzema has told close friends that he fancies a move to Old Trafford in the future.

The Frenchman superstar has been one of Madrid’s most important players for nearly a decade now, playing as the club’s only orthodox centre-forward during a period of unprecedented success for the club.

Recently the Los Blancos won a record three consecutive Champions League titles beating Liverpool 3-1 in their last final back in May and Benzema got on the scoresheet with the first goal in the game.

Manchester United are currently in need for a striker to add competition to the front line with only Romelu Lukaku as the targetman but the 30-year-old superstar, who has 254 career goals to his name can help the Red Devils return to the top and start challenging for titles.

Karim Benzema in action for Real Madrid

Manchester United side have been less than impressive themselves in England recently, with number one striker Romelu Lukaku struggling to lead the line effectively despite an abundance of quality players around him.

According to Sport English, Benzema who played under Jose Mourinho during the Portuguese time at Real Madrid has admitted to sources close to him that he would love to play for Manchester United or Paris Sanit Germain, with the January transfer window just around the corner.

A move to PSG would see Benzema return to his homeland in France, but there is always a chance that he might fancy the opportunity to prove his worth in the Premier League, meaning if this particular story develops in the new year, a genuinely close bidding war could ensue.

Benzema has the experience and quality to add something extra to any club in Europe, but that being said, he still remains very much a Madrid player for the time being.

Benzema has only managed to find the back of the net on five occasions in all competitions so far this term, as Madrid have struggled to score goals in general during a stuttering opening few months of the season.
