Transfer Balls: Karim Benzema says Arsenal rumours are a joke
What news of Karim Beenzema’s transfer to Arsenal? The Metro says Arsenal are “set to lodge a £50m bid for his services”. Real Madrid’s French striker is “ready to accept a transfer to the Emirates”. The Daily Star hears a “Madrid insider” says Arsenal will take the player in “the next 48 hours”.
According to no less an authority than the Daily Star, Karim Benzema will arrive at Arsenal today. The Daily Telegraph told us he joined Arsenal two weeks ago.
The player has taken time out from his packing to tell fans that, er, it’s not happening, tweeting:
For all those clowns who want to make believe things at my fans. Here this is my home !
Or as the Star, Metro and Daily Telegraph would surely put it: “Benzema looks for second home in Arsenal!”
