Transfer Balls: Benzema signs for Arsenal (again)
Transfer balls: Arsenal target Karim Benzema set to make transfer to England, says Jamie Sanderson.
Sanderson writes for the Metro. He told us that Benzema has already joined Arsenal – which he hasn’t.
Another Metro writer agreed:
Now we learn via the trusty Sanderson:
Fichajes says he’s set to be moved on in the coming months following news he’s been charged in a blackmail plot against Lyon star Mathieu Valbuena. It’s claimed that Madrid feel he’s damaged the club with a series of incidents, including this one involving Valbuena, and he’s now likely to move to England.
Number of quotes from Madrid players, staff, fans or even unnamed ‘sources’ in the Fichajes story: none.
And as the BBC puts it:
And Sky says:
And as Benzema noted:
Benzema denies any wrongdoing.
The Metro carries on regardless.
