.............I HOPE THIS NEWS DO NOT HAPPEN...............

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will make a record-breaking offer for Lyon's French super striker Karim Benzema - his dream target - in the next week.

Fergie and United chief executive David Gill are working on a deal to snap up the 20-year-old who is tipped to star in Euro 2008 and insiders reveal they can get their man in a few days.

Benzema was top of Fergie's wish-list for a new striker a few months ago, but he was given no encouragement by Lyon, who are notoriously hard to deal with.

However, Fergie has now decided to make an offer which could go as high as £30m.

Benzema impressed Ferguson when the clubs met in the Champions League last season, the hitman scoring in a 1-1 draw in France.

His combination of power and skill sets him apart from other potential signings.

Ferguson knows Benzema is one of the few players who could make a difference and help take his side to the next level.

United insiders say Fergie and Gill are 'working on something big', but have also set a deadline to tie up the move. Ferguson hopes to move fast because he knows the price could rise if Benzema has a successful Euro 2008.-ThePeople

Lyon Accept Benzema Bid, Now It's Up To Him!

Not confirmed this new but on Wikipedia, it appears that Lyon have accepted a
£25M offer plus Louis Saha for their striker Karim Benzema.

Wikipedia said:
Karim will decide his own future after Olympique Lyonnais
accepted a bid from Manchester United believed to be around £25 million and
French striker Louis Saha in part exchange
I do say this is not confirmed and is still only speculation!

£30m? thats alot of money for a player not really proven on the biggest stage.
fabiano and alves for a combined £30m looks a better deal.

Hes a lot younger and is just as proven as Fabiano

IMO getting him and Richards would be great business

If theres any sort of truth to this I would say thats a ridiculous off we've put in for him. But then cosidering Saha is always injured anyway its not as if we're really losing a player, no point keeping someone If he cant get himself on the pitch.

i seriously wouldnt mind spending 30m on him and another 30m on either richards or dani alves, we get these players and we might just be un-playable next season i really hope this happens could be amazing :)

benzema is qualtiy, he is the best striker i have seen since ronaldo(fat one) so i would pay £30M is a heartbeat for him.

the only worry is that tevez would drop to the bench:(

i dont think so haggler, this boy could be the best player in the world in a few seasons under the stewardship of fergie, 20m plus saha wont cut it imo, i think we're looking more at 30m plus saha or even more ... it's going to cost us but i do believe it's worth it, we've been crying out for someone to help tevez and rooney out up front :)
