Lyon striker Karim Benzema is closing in on a move to Manchester United after the French clubÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s special adviser, Bernard Lacombe, admitted they could sell the striker.
United are in the market for more attacking options following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez so far this summer.
“He is with us, but nobody knows what will happen,” Lacombe told Progres.
“We didn’t think Michael Essien would leave at the time, but when Chelsea arrived with the cheque…
“If United, who as we know have plenty of cash available, came and said we want to buy Benzema, what can you do? Not much.”
