Karim Benzema turns down Man United in favour of Madrid

Bettingpro Staff 29 Jun 2009

Real Madrid are now the clear favourites to sign the 21-year-old Karim Benzema after tabling a £28 million bid.

Manchester United will have to hope that French club Lyon are holding out for £30 million as they plan to hijack the transfer.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan is now ready to confirm an Antonio Valencia deal that would take the winger to Manchester United for £16 million and quadruple his current wages.

However, it's believed Ferguson would rather get his hands on Benzema or Ribery in favour of Valencia, who would join United only if those transfers are scuppered.
