Olympique Lyon confirmed that they reached an agreement with Real Madrid about the transfer of Karim Benzema for a fee of 35m euros which may eventually rise to 41m euros.

The statement claims that Benzema asked Lyon to be allowed to leave as he was keen to be part of Real Madrid’s new Galactico project and the club granted his wish after a little negotiation.

Well, if he was really a transfer target for Fergie then he must be disappointed – but I guess he’ll be over it soon and turn his attention towards others.
