Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, not sure if it should be in banter or here.

Lyon hotshot Karim Benzema will cost a world-record 100million euros (£79m) transfer fee.

The French champions have put this staggering price on the 20-year-old's head as they seek to ward off a host of top clubs linked with the star.

Manchester United are among those linked to the French international, who has already scored five goals in Ligue 1 so far this term and another against Fiorentina in Group F of the UEFA Champions League last week.

But club president Jean-Michel Aulas says possible suitors will have to stump up a record amount to prise the player away from the French champions.

"We have signed a contract with him until 2013, with a get-out clause of 100million euros," warned Aulas, adding that Benzema is an integral part of their bid to progress beyond the last 16 of the Champions League.,19528,11667_4186331,00.html

A bit of a sick joke, if Benzema is worth £80m then Ronaldo is worth £300m.

It was in the wrong forum mate, not to worry though, easy to move. ;)

€100m buy out clause is a sensible move by Lyon if you ask me.
Puts off a lot of the transfer speculation and only teams with a serious interest
would even consider trying an approach for him now.
