Real Madrid are willing to sell Karim Benzema to Manchester United in the summer, according to reports from Caught Offside. 

The Red Devils are reportedly keen on making an offer for the French forward as they look to improve their strike force, and it seems Madrid are happy to sell for the right price.

Reports suggest that Los Blancos are prepared to offload their forward for £66million as they look to move him on in order to raise funds to bring new players to the club.

The 31-year-old has 18 goals in 35 games so far for this season but, after nearly 10 years with the club, could be making the trip to England this summer.

Benzema moved to Real Madrid from Lyon in the summer of 2009.

United have Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku vying for their main centre-forward spot at the moment.

Despite that, Benzema’s experience could help the Red Devils push on next season as they look to challenge for the title once again.

There is speculation former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane could take the helm at Old Trafford, so bringing in his former number 9 would seem a sensible acquisition is that were to happen.
