Real Madrid have paved the way for Liverpool target Karim Benzema to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, after it was revealed that the Spanish giants have lined up a move for Paris Saint Germain’s Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani, as reported by fichajes.net.
Benzema has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, and Liverpool have emerged as an interested party in the French international in recent weeks.
Luis Suarez’s departure in the summer has left the Anfield club with a lack of goalscorers, and Benzema has a fantastic record in recent seasons.
Despite his decent form since the start of the new campaign, Benzema is consistently underrated at the Bernabeu, and it seems as though the club’s hierarchy are now targeting another player to take his place.
Should Real chose to move for Cavani, who is unsettled at PSG, it would almost certainly mean the end of Benzema’s time at the Bernabeu, meaning that Liverpool could swoop.
