Talks open: Man United now make move to sign “the best no.9 in the world” after Martial injury

Posted by

Karim Benzema is apparently hoping to temporarily leave Al-Ittihad, and Manchester United has made an attempt to sign him.

Anthony Martial’s injuries

This season, every team in the top 14 of the Premier League has scored more goals than United, who have only scored 24 goals from 21 games. Erik ten Hag and the Red Devils have struggled to score goals.

Consequently, it appears that attacking reinforcements are needed, particularly in light of Anthony Martial’s lacklustre performance and game time—he has just once scored in the top tier.

The forward, 28, will not be renewing his contract at Old Trafford in the summer. A Man United statement states that he will miss 10 weeks following surgery for a groyne injury.

Anthony Martial, a striker for Manchester United, underwent a successful procedure to treat a groyne ailment. He will miss roughly ten weeks of play while recovering. We anticipate Anthony’s return and wish him a quick recovery.

Therefore, the necessity for a short-term striker option to support Rasmus Hojlund for the second half of the season appears to be evident, and it looks as if Sir Jim Ratcliffe and co are wasting no time in seeking for a new headline attacker.

Man United starts talking to Karim Benzema

The Red Devils are negotiating a January contract with Benzema’s group, according to news from Spain that Sport Witness reported on Wednesday. The Frenchman wants to temporarily leave Saudi Arabia.

The 36-year-old’s desire has not yet been fulfilled by Al-Ittihad’s ownership, but it is stated that talks are still ongoing and that Benzema’s entourage is in contact with a number of teams, including Manchester United.

After leaving Real Madrid last season, Benzema is rumoured to be earning an incredible £200 million a season in Saudi Arabia. For this reason, it makes sense that Al-Ittihad would want to hang onto the 2022 Ballon d’Or winner.

The renowned striker has continued to score goals in the Saudi Pro-League, tallying 17 in 20 games for his current team. Benzema may be amenable to a short-term contract with United in England, though, given he has never participated in the Premier League despite spending significant time at Lyon and Real Madrid.

Ten Hag might be receiving the “best no.9 in the world” if that is the case, as Benzema was described by Zinedine Zidane, the former manager, back in 2018.

“Everyone is aware of Benzema’s skill as a player, including me. He is scoring goals at an amazing rate. I make up for his loss. Everyone is free to disagree on who the greatest No. 9 in the world is, but in my opinion, Karim is the finest. It’s excellent that he is confident and aware that you can always improve. I don’t find what he’s doing surprising.
