Arsenal set to sign Benzema ahead of United?

According to today's News of The World Arsenal are about to scupper United's bid to sign Benzema from Lyon. Question: would Arsene Wenger pay £35m for one player? I personally doubt it, but there's also talk of the Gunners' having first refusal on the Frenchman.

Despite the latest claims I cannot see United being outbid by Arsenal on this occasion, however, the player might prefer London over Manchester, there's also the rather obvious French connection and so we cannot dismiss this story out of hand. As ever on such occasions there's no direct quotes - so watch this space for further developments...

On a separate note, Scott over at Republik of Mancunia is running a summer competition...in between scanning all news sources for updates on transfers you might want to trundle over for a look-see..

  1. I wouldn't be too concerned about us getting in there before you. Arsene can't spend that sort of money without selling Ade who no one wants, it seems.
