No Chance: Blow In Liverpool £50m Striker Chase

Liverpool have been consistently linked with a stunning £50 million bid for Real Madrid’s striker Karim Benzema.

It is thought that Benzema is not particularly rated by the manager Carlo Ancelotti or the club’s hierarchy, and despite his relatively decent record for the Spanish side, there is word that the giants would be willing to accept a bid that met their valuation of him.

However, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has shot down the claims that Real are willing to sell him.

He has insisted that Real president Florentino Perez, contrary to reports, is actually a big fan of Benzema, and there is no way that the Champions League holders will let him depart in the near future.

He tweeted: “Totally impossible that Benzema leaves Madrid in January. Essential to the team and a president favourite. The club has confirmed that too.”

This will come as a blow to Liverpool, who had clearly identified Benzema as an option to improve their struggling strikeforce, as reported by the Daily Star.

The likes of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have failed to fill Luis Suarez’s boots since their arrivals, and Daniel Sturridge has spent large swathes of the season on the treatment table.

  1. That anyone at liverpool really believes they can attract quality footballers simply beggars belief. Just have a look, why would any half decent player with even the slightest ambition even consider them as a serious option. Rodgers is inept and obviously out of his depth as poor signings and results have clearly shown.

  2. One reason why quality players would sign for Liverpool. The fact they are a massive club, they will bounce back eventually. And we are one of the biggest teams in the best league in the world. Take that haters!

    1. No liverpool is certainly not a massive club and everybody knows the truth of this and their supporters pretending otherwise changes nothing. They are a pale shadow of the team they once were but that was thirty years ago, the modern game has left liverpool behind leaving it to feed off past glories and fading memories.

  3. well, if a team like Manchester City can buy the Premiership.. then why not? Everybody in the world know pedigree names like Liverpool and Manchester United. However, Chelsea and Man City who?
