Benzema could leave for Italy

Italian giants Milan have been circling around the transfer market for another striker and in question it is Karim Benzema the French international who is on their target list.

It seems the 25 year old has been linked with the Italian side and is very unhappy at his current club Real Madrid. If he does move to Milan he will will compete with the likes of Mario Balotelli, Robinho and Niang.

At his current club, there has been massive changes to the spquad and the coaching staff as Carlo Ancelotti is now the manager and Jose Mourinho has left for Chelsea. Gonzalo Higuain still has his future up in the air as he is looking elsewhere to ply his trade.

Benzema joined Real Madrid back in 2009 appearing in 124 matches and scoring 55 goals and for his national side France he has played 58 caps and has bagged 15 goals.

In my opinion, this will be a very difficult transfer as Mario Balotelli already has a starting role as central striker in which Karim Benzema plays the similar position to him. The Milan coaching staff will have their work cut out for them if the deal does proceed as they will be looking to compete for the Scudetto next season.
