Arsenal are looking to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema this summer and are reportedly the favorites in the race where Manchester United too are the eligible destination for the player.
It has been a while since the French player has been linked with a move out of Spain. The player has been on Arsenal’s target list for over a year and last summer too the Gunners were looking to sign the player, although the deal never came through.
Benzema, who helped Real Madrid win their 11th Champions League title last Saturday is also Manchester United incoming boss Jose Mourinho’s target, who is looking to bolster United’s attacking option this summer.
However, according to reports, Arsenal are the favorites to sign the player and are ahead of United in the race for the striker’s signature this summer. On the other hand, while the player himself stated that he is happy at Real Madrid during the conference after winning the Champions League, there is no stopping the speculations regarding his move out of the club.
