Real Madrid close in on Benzema
Premier League Manchester United
Well, it looks like we won't be signing him after all.
Real Madrid have agreed a deal to sign striker Karim Benzema from Lyon, according to the French club.
The fee is believed to £30m for the 21-year-old France international and could rise to £35m.
Benzema had also been linked with Manchester United but now looks set for a switch to the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid have already signed forwards Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka as well as defender Raul Albiol for a combined £148m so far this summer.
