Man Utd ponder double Real Madrid raid for Benzema, Diarra

Manchester United could make a double raid on Real Madrid this summer.

Sport says Karim Benzema and Lassana Diarra are both being put up for sale by Real - and the duo are wanted by United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson sees Diarra as a replacement for the departing Owen Hargreaves, while striker Benzema has been a long-term target for the Scot.

Real president Florentino Perez would prefer to keep Benzema, but coach Jose Mourinho would rather see him moved on.

United are willing to go as high as £30 million to land the French striker.
