This is a good thing. HH understands that a loan deal with an option to buy has been agreed with Real Madrid.
Benzema has been inked tentatively with many other clubs under the slowly reemerging sun including Le Arsenal, Chelsea, Villa and Manchester City of course.
Arry made a typical Arry style denial about the player last month. Loving the ‘at the moment’ bit. He’d swear not guilty in the Old Bailey and add, ‘probably’ afterwards.
‘There’s nothing in that,’ he said. ‘He’s a good player, I like him, he looks a real talent. But certainly we haven’t made any enquiries at all for him. There’s definitely nothing going on there at the moment.’
Frenchman Benzema 23, was on fire at Lyon but his stint so far at Real has not been accompanied by quite so many flames. His goal tally is relatively poor and he was dropped from the last French World Cup squad.
This may have had more to do with the state of that country’s entry or even his alleged entry into 17 year old hooker Zahia Dehar.
At this stage I am unable to confirm if West Ham are set to mount an audacious swoop and wreck this deal with a megabid, but do assure readers I will keep a close eye on the situation.
