Transfer Talk

Looks like Benzema’s feeling a bit unhappy at Real Madrid

Benzema – disgruntled

Karim Benzema

If the rumours are true, Sir Alex Ferguson will be clearing out the dead wood over the summer, and looking to freshen up the Man United squad, with Karim Benzema’s name scrawled somewhere near the top of his wants list.

The good news for the kindly Scotsman is that the French striker seems to be tiring of his role of warming the substitutes bench, whilst his fellow glacticos get to play sexy liquid football for Real Madrid.

Speaking to the French sports newspaper L’Equipe, Benzema has admitted that he feels greatly “disappointed” by his lack of chances to start matches, having not featured in the top eleven since 21st November.

He has vowed to fight for his place in the team, but how long before the gifted frontman decides to call time on his Spanish jaunt?

Fergie will surely be lurking in the shadows.

    I’m just happy that huge price tag didn’t mean he’d be playing all the time, when he clearly isn’t as good as the others in the team.

    I really hope he will decide soon to leave Real Madrid. Sir Alex will make him shine and he will show his true talent. I think real madrid is going to kill him by smothering his talent. Furthermore the press and the Madrid fans are racist.

    ^ Oh please. Way to generalise the whole of Madrid as rasicst, how narrow minded are you?

    Benzema is not good enough for Madrid, Madrid should never have let young Negredo go, he’d be as useful as a back up as Benzema is. Higuain is one of the best strikers around in europe so Benzema deserves to be benched. Whenever he does play hes really lazy, he tries to play like Ronaldo (brazilian) but he doesnt have the shill to be so laid back. Utd are welcome to him.

    Woop woop, come to Old Trafford! Alongside Nani, Berbatov, Anderson, Tosic, Foster, Hargreaves, Ferdinand, Carrick et al you will find many friends amongst the other players who get paid shitloads and fail to perform on a weekly basis.

    Luka – stop chatting shit, Anees is right, racism seems to be tolerated more in spain, not to single them out but the whole world is racist one way or another. Benzema is not welcome at United…we were too small for him before and good ridden.

    Lastly this this site is has no idea how to properly place adverts, the stupid side banners on the side block the content, it makes your whole site look un-proffesional and ugly with all these adverts, consider fixing this. Anyone bothered should try a adblocker if using firefox.

    Benzema’s career is on the downhill. If it goes like this for another couple of months, Domenech may not take him to South Africa.
    Well if one’s “dream is to play for Real Madrid”, will not mind missing the World Cup. Wonder how stupid that dream can be. Wtf Real madrid is? Did not hear about it until the Internet explosion.

    DarkKnight im not chatting shit. I lived in Madrid for 3 years and never did i encounter racism. Maybe in the more nothern area’s in Spain but not once in Madrid.

    I know your now probably going to use the England Vs Spain game as an exxample, but that was a few idiots and its wrong to tarnish a whole city with one brush.

    I encountered more racism in London schools when i was kid then i did in 3 years in Spain.

    Luka – Fair enough, i never spent time in Madrid so can’t comment. Apologies for saying you are chatting shit.

    I am now using my home pc (was at work earlier), no darm ads, thank you adblock plus :)

    Luka I was going to finish reading your posts but im afraid I could not get past “Higuain is one of the best strikers in Europe” without urinating into my trousers. And then you followed that little gem up with London is more racist than Spain/ Madrid. I want what Lukas having as it is clearly very strong and possibly illegal :-)

    Woah woah woah – Benzema isnt good? Benzema is possibly the best young striker in world football, and Madrid pulled off a massive transfer coup to get him. Technically, and ability-wise, he is unrivalled in the world of prospects but he is heavily let down by his attitude – lazy at times, lacksadaisical and generally quite sulky. Turn this around and Madrid have a fantastic player to rival Kaka and Ronaldo
