United urged to buy top target now...

Lyons' Jean-Alain Boumsong has hinted that United should try to buy Karim Benzema as soon as possible, he says that the French club cannot compete with the Red Devils: "We want to win the Champions League, but that is going to be difficult because maybe next season Manchester United will buy Benzema. We can't compare United and Lyons', they can afford the best players in the world.”

Lyons' president Jean-Michel Aulas, has a well earned reputation for prizing sky-high fees out of clubs who have bought players from his club.

Ferguson wanted Michael Essien and Mahamadou Diarra, but was outbid by Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Aulas has recently slapped a £45m price tag on the head of Karim Benzema, or alternatively Cristiano Ronaldo plus cash...

More likely it's thought that United will offer 'the man in bandages' aka Louis Saha, plus cash.

Boumsong was talking to the SUNDAY TIMES.

  1. Given the increased media speculation, it seems unlikely that United can prize away Benzema but for a fortune, or being outbid by Milan, we still need to replace Van Nistelrooy and not depend on Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez for 40 goals a season combined, as they have more playmaking behind the penalty or outside the penalty box roles.
