Agent of big time striker sends transfer message to Chelsea
Karim Benzema’s agent has sent a clear message to the likes of CHELSEA over the immediate future of the veteran striker.
The transfer window has been open for quite a few weeks not – but despite all the rumours and despite all the speculation – the club have been unable to get a deal done for a new striker.
Whether that is because we are scared of the Financial Fair player rules, or whether it is because they simply cannot get the players that they desire – Mauricio Pochettino does not have a 20-goals a season forward as it stands.
That has led to some stunning reports in the media which have claimed that we may bring Benzema back to European football after news broke just a few weeks ago that he is not happy in Saudi Arabia.
Unfortunately for any interested parties, Benzema looks almost certain to be forced to remain where he is for now with L’Equipe reporting that the former Ballon d’Or winner will ‘will 100% stay at Al-Ittihad’.
There has been so many rumours regarding the possible signing of Benzema for the club – and although he would be better than what the club have right now – it would just be a waste of money.
He is not a long-term signing – he is not a man that can score 20-30 goals a season anymore, that is why Madrid allowed him to depart the club, so it would not really make any sense from the board to actually get a deal done.
