Karim Benzema Gets Manchester United Fans Excited

Karim Benzema is celebrating taking home another Champions League winner’s medal today but some Manchester United fans reckon he could soon be on his way to Old Trafford.

The French striker, now 29, started as Real Madrid’s central striker during the club’s 4-1 win over Juventus in Cardiff last night, and played well despite getting on the scoresheet.

He was replaced late in the second-half by Gareth Bale, but anybody who is keeping Alvaro Morata on the bench must still be a pretty good player.

But does he need some new surroundings? Well, if he does, United supporters are hoping he could be heading to the Premier League after excitedly meeting up with Sir Alex Ferguson for a picture during last night’s celebrations:

Was he negotiating a transfer? Or, as is more likely, just saying congratulations? Regardless of the answer, it won’t stop this lot speculating:

Would he be a good fit at United?
