Big name agent Francois Gallardo has revealed he's set for talks with English clubs over Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema. Speaking with Punto Pelota, Gallardo says he is scheduled to meet with club representatives next week.

He revealed: "Next week, after the El Clasico, my team and I will be in Madrid. A person from England will come to see us and then call into the offices of the Bernabéu to meet with Real. They want to inquire about Benzema.

"The English team will want him in the winter but, if not possible, to get him back in the summer. The offered amount will be around €45 -50 million and is a top club from England."

Arsenal and Chelsea have both been linked with the Frenchman this season.
