Karim Benzema offered to Premier League duo

Karim Benzema has been offered to both Manchester United and Arsenal, allege talkSPORT, quoting reports from Spanish outlet Diario Gol.

The 30-year old French striker has spent 9 years at Real and together with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale has formed part of their BBC attack. However, with reports that the Spanish giants are looking to significantly overhaul their squad in the summer, Benzema could be sold to free up funds for them to make a bid to sign for the likes of Eden Hazard and Harry Kane.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has long been linked with a move for Benzema, whilst Jose Mourinho knows the player well from when he managed Real for three years.

However, whether either Arsenal or United would be interested in signing Benzema is open to question, both having strengthened their forward lines in the recent transfer window. United signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, whilst the Gunners went and replaced him with record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund.
