SPORTEPL: Make it happen – Cole hands Man Utd name of striker to sign


Former Manchester United attacker Andy Cole has urged the Red Devils to sign former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema before the January transfer window closes next week.

Benzema, who currently plays for Saudi Arabia club Al-Ittihad, has been linked with a move away from the club this month.

When asked if he would have signed the Frenchman had he been in charge of transfers at Man United, Cole told Betfred:

“150%. I would sign him if it was only for a training session. I was very surprised when he left Real Madrid in the summer, but I understand why it happened.

“That money he is earning in Saudi Arabia is generational wealth. It is for his kids and his kids’ kids.

“When you are at that age in your career and you have already won four La Liga titles, five Champions League trophies and the Ballon d’Or, I can understand why he went to Saudi.

“Could he do it in the Premier League at his age? 100% considering the way he looks after himself. If Manchester United have the opportunity to sign him, then they should definitely try and make that happen.”
