Regarding Karim Benzema’s immediate future, his agent has made it apparent to teams like Chelsea and Arsenal.
The legendary Real Madrid player had an amazing record of scoring goals, but he had a falling out with his now-former manager Nuno Espirito Santo and had to delete his social media accounts after receiving a barrage of criticism from his own supporters.
Due to Benzema’s alleged unhappiness, several Premier League teams hoping to recruit a legitimate No. 9 during the January transfer window are on high alert.
Given their difficulties in front of goal this season, it was not surprising that Manchester United was the first team to be connected to Benzema.
Wolves are rumoured to be interested in Armando Broja, therefore the Blues have put a £50 million price tag on the academy graduate’s head and are prepared to consider offers.
Ivan Toney, Arsenal’s main target, is unlikely to be acquired this month despite his apparent reversal earlier this week.
Sadly for those who may be interested, it appears that Benzema will have to stay put for the time being. According to L’Equipe, the former Ballon d’Or winner “will 100% stay at Al-Ittihad.”
In contrast to Benzema, Jordan Henderson completed his transfer to Ajax on Thursday by skillfully orchestrating his departure from the Saudi Pro League.
‘I regret to inform you that I will be departing from Al Ettifaq effective immediately,’ the former captain of Liverpool stated on Twitter.
Though I believe it to be the greatest choice for my family and me, it wasn’t an easy one to make. I want to use this chance to express my gratitude to the supporters and the club for their support throughout my stay. From Day One on, I truly felt the love.
“I’ll continue to watch and wish you luck.” I wish you well going forward.
