Benzema to Madrid?

Reports out of Madrid this morning state that Benzema may be officially announced today or early tomorrow.

Manchester United may have made a larger offer (45 million euros), but it appears the French international striker, as he stated during Lyon's season, preferred the Spanish club. Huntelaar refused to be incorporated into the allegedly 35 million euro deal. Benzema's desire to play at Madrid and the strong relationship between Florentino Perez and Lyon president Jean Michele Aulas appear to be the decisive factors in this deal.

Stay tuned.
