Transfer Balls: Benzema to Arsenal (says the Metro)
Transfer Balls: Arsenal are buying Karim Benzema. Well, so sys the Metro, which says the French striker is not happy because Real Madrid boss Rafael Benitez substituted him in five of his last six league starts.
“It’s true I’m fed up of being taken off,” Benzema tells AS. “I’m calm and will continue to work so I’m not always substituted.”
Of course, what it also means is that Benitez keeps picking the player to start matches. In other words, he’s first choice at Madrid.
