Karim Benzema, a striker for France, has been linked to leaving Saudi Arabian team Al Ittihad.
The player is reportedly unhappy with the Saudi team, and Real Madrid and Manchester United are interested in signing him, according to a report via Fichajes.
To address their goal-scoring issues, Manchester United hopes to sign the player on a season-long loan. At the beginning of the season, they signed Rasmus Hojlund, a youthful attacker who will require some time to adjust to English and develop into a reliable player.
The 36-year-old Benzema might help Manchester United in the long run and would be the perfect stopgap. He has established himself at the highest level with club and country over the years and there is no doubt that he is a world-class performer.
The striker has scored 15 goals this season in all competitions, but it’s unclear if Manchester United will be able to withstand Real Madrid’s competition and sign the player. For the player, the chance to rejoin his old team is probably a compelling one as well.
Benzema is aware of what it takes to be a professional athlete. His winning mindset and leadership abilities would be great assets to the Manchester United squad.
In order to qualify for the Champions League, the Red Devils will be fervently seeking game-changing acquisitions in January. They may be significantly improved by someone like Benzema, who would make them real challengers for a top four finish.
