Benzema offered to Arsenal and Chelsea
Karim Benzema has established himself as one of the best strikers in the world ever since breaking into the Lyon first team back in 2004 and the 29-year-old has further enhanced his reputation at Real Madrid over the years.
Despite his exploits at the Santiago Bernabeu though, Benzema has consistently been linked with a move away from Real Madrid and it is believed that Los Blancos could potentially get rid of the French international next summer, as they aim to purchase Paulo Dybala from Juventus.
In addition, Benzema’s relationship with the fans seem to have taken a hit as he was booed by the supporters during Real Madrid’s Copa Del Rey defeat against Celta Vigo recently and there is now a strong possibility that the striker will end of leaving the European Champions.
Now in reports from the Metro, revelations have been made that Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to offload Benzema and he has offered the attacker to Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea have consistently been linked with a move for Benzema over the past few years and it will be interesting to see if the striker does in fact leave Madrid for London at the end of the current campaign.
Atletico Madrid offering whopping contract to Alexis Sanchez
Due to the long running contractual saga surrounding him, Alexis Sanchez’s future at Arsenal has been put into doubt and unsurprisingly, a number of clubs are currently monitoring the situation of the Chilean international very closely.
Now in fresh rumors from the Sun, it can be revealed that Sanchez is currently being courted by La Liga giants Atletico Madrid as well. Atletico anticipate losing star man Antoine Griezmann this summer and they already seem to have identified Sanchez as an ideal replacement.
In order to lure Sanchez away from the Emirates Stadium, Atletico are said to be preparing a sizeable £220,000-per-week offer for the attacker and the potential deal represents a £60,000 increase of his current deal at North London.
