Arsenal Prepare Outrageous Offer of £70m for Real Madrid Pair

By on April 8, 2014


According to Reports by Caught Offside, Arsene Wenger is ready for another raid of the Bernabeu with an outrageous offer of £70m for Karim Benzema and Angel di Maria.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly preparing an overhaul of the Madrid attack, and so Benzema and Di Maria may be considered surplus to requirements.

Benzema has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season, but has been lambasted by a number of Madrid fans this year for some poor performances. If Madrid fail to win the Champions League or La Liga title, then there is a distinct possibility that frustrations with the Frenchman will boil over, and he will be moved on.

Angel di Maria has been a long-term target of Arsene Wenger, and Gareth Bale’s arrival at the Bernabeu has forced the Argentine to the bench on a number of occasions this year.

Di Maria has only managed to accumulate four full 90 minute matches since November, as Ancelotti has preferred the likes of Bale and Isco throughout the year.

Wenger will certainly hope that his £70m offer is enough to lure the two players to the Emirates. Giroud has been an isolated figure at times this year, and for all of Arsenal’s flowing football, they often lack  firepower up front.

What do you think? Will Arsenal manage to sign these players?
