Red hot striker on way in?

Fresh reports have been linking the Champions of Europe with a £30m raid for Lyon's Karim Benzema. The 20-year-old is one of the top striker's on the continent and he impressed against the Reds in the Champions League this season.

The player, who is of Algerian descent, recently signed a one year extension on his current deal which takes him to 2013, but should United press home their reported interest with a £30m bid for the player, Lyon will find it hard to resist.

Karim Benzema certainly fits the bill, he's young, he was the Player of The Year in France, he can play as a lone striker or on the wing and he has pace. United could even try to offload Saha in part-exchange.

  1. Benzema coming would be bad news for rival fans :-(

  2. Benzema would be a great buy, I don't know too much about him though, and let's not hope he takes his time to settle down like Alfonso Alves.
