It has been reported that Real Madrid BLOCKED Karim Benzema from joining Arsenal.
The Daily Mail claims that Benzema wanted to move to Arsenal, but was prevented from doing so by Los Blancos president Florentino Perez.
Benzema is one of Perez’s favourite players.
The French international has scored three times in three La Liga appearances so far this term, and looks settled at the Bernabeu once again.
Benzema was linked with a £40million switch to the Emirates.
