Karim Benzema is intending to stay at Olympique Lyonnais for another year. That’s the fact but there’s also a silver lining for the Benzema fans: he might think about United’s offer if Fergie made a bid.

‘Karim is on holiday at the moment and he is not thinking of moving,’ his agent said.

‘He wants to stay in France for another year so that he can prepare for the World Cup and I think that Sir Alex knows this.

‘Perhaps he wants to make an offer to Lyon. If that happens, then Karim will think about it, but as things stand, Karim wants to stay with Lyon for another year.’


So, it’s still unlikely that we will get him but Lyon would listen to offers and Benzema would think about a potential switch. It’s worth a try, isn’t it?
