Caught Offside are reporting that Chelsea are preparing a staggering £40M bid to acquire the services of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema. They report that the Frenchman is the ideal candidate in Mourinho’s hunt for a prolific striker.
Real Madrid apparently are willing to listen to offers for the 26-year-old after identifying Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero as key targets. However the blues might face stiff competition from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and PSG who are all deemed to be interested in Benzema.
The paper report that the fact that Mourinho has had experience of working with Benzema at Madrid could be a deciding factor. Since joining Madrid in 2009, the former Lyon forward has managed an impressive 111 goals in 231 appearances.
