When will people learn that the red top newspapers like The Sun, News of the World, Daily Mirror, Daily Star etc are all garbage rag papers that are not worth the paper they are written on. It is impossible for us to sign Karim Benzema right now for so many reasons that anyone with an ounce of football knowledge should be aware of. First of all Benzema does not want to leave Lyon yet and Lyon do not want to sell, secondly he has publicly said that when he leaves Lyon he would choose Italy or Spain above England, and thirdly with the big chunk of money required to make the transfer of Tevez permanent we do not have anywhere near the transfer funds available to complete such a huge tranfer like Karim Benzema.

Apart from all of the above reasons, in case you had not noticed we already have a wealth of options in the striker department with Tevez Rooney Berbatov Manucho and the rising star Welbeck along with Frazier Campbell who could return. Why the hell would we want to spend 35M to 40M on yet another striker, it would be absolutely crazy.

Man Utd alerted as Lyon prepare Benzema sale

09.11.08 | tribalfootball.com

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been alerted that long-term target Karim Benzema will be up for grabs next summer.

Lyon have finally accepted they cannot hang on to the talented striker and will accept bids of up to £20million. Barcelona and Real Madrid will also be interested.

:) :) :) :) :D :D :D :p :p :p
Tribal Football is the Internets answer to the Sun newspaper so don't believe it. Even if Lyon were ready to sell and Benzema was ready to come to the premiership we do not have the finances to make such a transfer as he would cost at least 35 million, and if we did sign him we would have another Ronaldo on our hands who would demand a transfer to Madrid in a few seasons time.

Thank you for bringing some reason, instead of just saying yes because we want more goals. People need to remember when they bring someone in, they are gonna have to move someone to the bench.
At the moment our squad is quite unbalanced, Rooney Tevez and Berbatov are all players that want to come deep, what is the point in having two wingers crossing the ball when the penalty box is empty. Tevez is a better player than Rooney so it would be ideal if we could sell Rooney and bring in a target man striker, Pavel Pogrebnyak from Zenit would be perfect in my opinion.

would give anything to see him in a man uniterd shirt! hes quailty and just the type of striker we need! hes a clincal finisher hes strong and hes fast as ****! definatly going to be the wrlds best striker in a couple of years he has everything
It would be incredible if Benzema came to Manchester United, he is going to be a legendary striker without a doubt. Berbatov and Benzema would be the greatest striker pairing the Premier League has ever seen. It would also give Rooney the kick up the backside that he needs to force him to lose some weight and be more consistant. If we could get Benzema for 35 million it would be a bargain in my opinion.
