Arsenal & United Offered Bernabeu Trio As Spaniards Raise Funds For Suarez & Bale
As we enter the final stages of the summer transfer window, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal and Man Utd have been offered a number of Real Madrid players.
Real Madrid have offered Arsenal and Manchester United the chance to sign Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria and Mesut Ozil as the Spaniard’s look to raise cash to fund moves for both Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez, according to the Mirror.
Madrid continue to haggle with Spurs over a world record deal for Bale but the report claims that Carlo Ancelotti is also eyeing a £42m move for unsettled Liverpool striker Suarez as he looks to completely re-shape his attack and he is prepared to sacrifice Benzema, Di Maria and Ozil in a bid to try and raise around £100m to finance the moves.
The Mirror suggest that the Gunners are showing a keen interest in all three players but while they are closest to doing a deal for Di Maria, Benzema remains their number one target as Arsene Wenger desperately tries to add a world class striker to his ranks before the window closes next Monday.
Signing the Frenchman could prove difficult though as it’s believed the 25-year-old is reluctant to leave the Bernabeu and is hoping to be offered a new contract, but he may have a change of heart once he finds out Real are actively trying to sell him behind his back.
The newspaper claims that third party owners have been touting the Madrid trio around the Premier League with Manchester United also offered the chance to sign them, but David Moyes is understood to have already turned down Benzema and it remains to be seen whether he’ll consider a move for either Ozil or Di Maria.
It seems any potential deals for the Madrid players will hinge on the La Liga club completing their protracted move for Bale, as they’re unlikely to let any of them go before the Welshman is tied up. With so many big-money moves still potentially in the pipeline, it’s gearing up to be a frantic final few days in the transfer window with many of England’s big clubs right at the heart of it all.
