Lyon admit Man Utd favourites for Benzema

Lyon's special adviser Bernard Lacombe admitted cash rich Manchester United could land Karim Benzema if they make a big enough offer. Reds boss Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly been a long-term admirer of France international Benzema.

"He is with us, but nobody knows what will happen," Lacombe told Progres.

"We didn't think Michael Essien would leave at the time, but when Chelsea arrived with the cheque...

"If United, who as we know have plenty of cash available, came and said we want to buy Benzema, what can you do? Not much."
