Lyon angry at Benzema rumour

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has hit out at Man Utd for attempting to destabilise young starlet Karim Benzema. There have been reports that Man Utd wish to sign the youngster for £45 million.

Aulas said in the Daily Mirror: "When Lyon, during the season, are interested in a player from another French club, everybody cries 'scandal'.

"But when, a few days before playing Manchester United, I read here and there that Ferguson is going to make an offer for Benzema, is that not destabilisation?"

Benzema is regarded in his homeland as one of the best young prospects and many already compare him to Zinedine Zidane.
