According to recent reports, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is privy to an inside information on Arsenal’s alleged interest in Karim Benzema next summer.
Karim Benzema has been highly impressive at Real Madrid since he joined the club back in 2009 and he recently signed a contract extension with Los Blancos till 2021, with the La Liga title holders including a huge €1billion release clause.
While Benzema is considered an integral part of the Madrid squad, it is believed that the European Champions are looking to take Tottenham’s Harry Kane off the market for a big money deal next summer and the potential arrival of the Englishman could make the French international fall out of favor at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Therefore, several clubs are already said to be considering the possibility of signing Benzema and Premier League side Arsenal are allegedly very interested in acquiring the signature of the 29-year-old, with Real Madrid also willing to negotiate for the right price.
Now in an update, the Daily Star has carried out reports claiming that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has inside information on Arsenal’s alleged pursuit of Benzema and the Portuguese tactician has dished out information to people close to him regarding the potential transfer.
It is unlikely that Mourinho will attempt to deter Arsenal’s move for Benzema as United already have the services of Romelu Lukaku but that being said, the Frenchman could prove to be a good addition to the Red Devils’ squad if they want to challenge for the Champions League title in the near future.
