Real Madrid seek £17M for Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal target Benzema

Real Madrid are seeking £17 million to sell Karim Benzema in January. The People says Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have been alerted to Benzema's availability in January after Spanish giants Real Madrid told the player's representatives to find him another club.

Arsenal were linked with Benzema in the summer as Real considered selling him to help finance their purchase of Gareth Bale, but Gunners opted instead for Mesut Ozil.

Now Madrid will look to recoup around £17million of the £25m they gave Lyon for Benzema four years ago.

United boss David Moyes has been told significant funds will be made available in January and may fancy Benzema.

Arsene Wenger has been forced to bring Nicklas Bendtner back into the fold because of a dearth of striking options at the Emirates, while Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is operating with just three strikers in Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba.
