According to Spanish soccer specialist, Hunter, Arsenal’s long-time pursuit of striker Karim Benzema is still possible.
Hunter spoke with Tsport on Thursday about a potential deal and claimed that Real Madrid could use an influx in cash. “Arsenal have the money and Real Madrid need the money,” explained Hunter. “They (Real Madrid) are €500 million in global debt, they are trying to buy David De Gea and won’t go the extra mile to get him off Manchester United because of the cash, so they need the money. “
Hunter also illustrated that newly-appointed manager Rafa Benitez is switching to a new formation for the upcoming season and a major player could be left out of the usual starting XI. “And because Rafa Benitez will play 4-2-3-1 there is one less place for an attacking player than there was last year,” said Hunter.
The pundit finished by claiming that the only way Benzema leaves the Spanish giants is if he asks them for a transfer.
