Robin van Persie is still considering his future at Old Trafford and is currently being linked with a move to Juventus as well as Inter Milan.

They also rejected a permanent move for Monaco star Radamel Falcao following an unconvincing loan spell this term, prompting his return to France.

With Wayne Rooney and James Wilson the only two strikers left, the arrival of Benzema will be seen as a huge boost for the Red Devils in their bids to compete in Europe.

The France international featured for the La Liga giants 46 times in all competitions this season, scoring 22 goals and providing 15 assists.
