Man Utd join race for BENZEMA
Manchester United are expected to lodge a formal offer for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
The France international has been constantly linked with a move to Arsenal, in spite of manager Arsene Wenger ruling out the possibility.
However, reports in France claim that the Red Devils may be forced to move in the transfer market for a new striker, with club captain Wayne Rooney struggling to find the net.
It is also thought that Van Gaal is mulling over a move for Karim Benzema, who is believed to be considering his future at the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid currently rate Benzema at £46m.
