Bernabéu Bites, 08.08.2013: Arsenal Chasing Benzema?

Kevork Djansezian

We bring you the latest news about Real Madrid, even though this is a slow day for the club. The whole press is focusing on the aftermath of Real's 3-1 win against Chelsea, but French site Le 10 Sport reports that Arsenal could be trying to land Karim Benzema for 46M€.

  • Marca is back with the Bale saga. They now say that Florentino Pérez had two meetings with Tottenham's President Daniel Levy. According to their report, Real Madrid would be willing to complete the deal this very same week in order to unveil the Welsh star next Tuesday. That way, Bale would be ready to play in Real Madrid's first match against Betis, Sunday 18th.
  • Varane and Real Madrid are ready to extend their contract, L'Equipe says. It would make a lot of sense for the club to sign this promising defender to a new deal, since he emerged as one of the world's greatest young players last season. He should also be a candidate for the 2014 Golden Boy Award.
