Benzema reportedly eyeing Manchester United move



Benzema reportedly eyeing Manchester United move

Al-Ittihad striker Karim Benzema is reportedly eyeing a return to European football, and Manchester United has emerged as a potential destination for the seasoned forward, according to reports from Marca.

Benzema bid farewell to his illustrious 14-year tenure with Real Madrid last June, opting for a fresh start in the Saudi Pro League with Al-Ittihad. The move saw him sign a lucrative three-year deal, raking in a reported £86 million per season.

The 36-year-old striker made a notable impact in the Middle East, netting 12 goals in 20 appearances.

However, recent developments suggest a potential rift between Benzema and Al-Ittihad.

The striker failed to report for the club’s pre-season campaign last Friday, prompting concerns among team members.

Consequently, the rest of the squad embarked on their journey to Dubai without Benzema, raising questions about the player’s commitment and his future with the Saudi club.

Head coach Marcelo Gallardo took decisive action, instructing Benzema to refrain from joining his teammates, further shrouding the striker’s future in uncertainty.

The unexpected turn of events has attracted interest from European clubs, with Manchester United one of those eyeing a move for the Frenchman.
