Real Madrid ready to sell £40million Man United and Gunners target

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is willing to let striker Karim Benzema leave, alerting the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, and Liverpool, according to the Express.

The French ace has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent years, but has always chosen to stay at the Spanish capital.

However sources in Spain suggest that former Chelsea boss Ancelotti will listen to offers for the 26-year-old.

Madrid are extremely close to breaking Financial Fair Play regulations, which may force the club to sell several players in the upcoming transfer window.

The likes of Javier Hernandez, Fabio Coentrao, Iker Casillas, and Sami Khedira are all names mooted to be looking for a move, which would help Real’s £479million debt.

Benzema is now another player who could leave the Santiago Bernabeu, but as he currently earns a massive £150,000-a-week in salary, the former Lyon wonderkid won’t be a cheap purchase.

If United, Arsenal, or Liverpool are serious on buying Benzema this winter, they will need to make a bid in the region of £40million to acquire his services.
