Man U still in hunt for Karim Benzema

Posted By: Staff

London, May 11 (ANI): Manchester United has still not given up hope of getting French striker Karim Benzema.

United boss Alex Ferguson lost out in his first attempt to sign the 22-year-old last summer, when he was outbid by Real Madrid.

Benzema made a 31 million pounds switch from Lyon. But he has been a flop for the Spanish giants, who are now ready to sell for around 25 million pounds.

The French striker has started only in 14 La Liga games this season and scored just eight league goals, The Sun reports.

United's owners, the Glazers, are desperate to make a big-name signing to silence some of the opposition to their reign.

Nemanja Vidic could be used as a 10 million pounds makeweight in a Benzema deal. (ANI)
