Karim Benzema has offers from Manchester United and Chelsea, Bale makes decision on Madrid future and Real Madrid transfer news: February 15, 2019
Hello and welcome to the Real Madrid news and rumours of the day! Here are the top stories of the day surrounding the Galacticos tonight!
Hazard at Madrid would be fun
More on Hazard, his Belgian team-mate Thibaut Courtois has claimed that Hazard coming to Madrid would be nice. This is not the first time that Courtois has spoken about a potential move for Hazard.
The Real Madrid shot-stopper, however, claimed that the final decision rests on the player himself and Real Madrid before claiming that Hazard is a close friend and an exceptional player.
"It would be nice of course [if Hazard joined Real], but I cannot say much about it," Courtois said.
"That is something he has to decide and Madrid must decide if they want him, because I do not know that either.
"But Eden is a top player and also my buddy, so if he came here it would be fun, but he has to make his choices."
Karim Benzema wants a pay rise
This is a report coming from Spain as Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema has asked for a pay rise at Real Madrid. The Frenchman has hit peak form this year and has been the best player for Madrid so far this season.
However, he is now asking for a hike in wages in a lifetime contract – just like the one Ramos has. The report also adds that Karim Benzema has offers from Chelsea and even Manchester United.
Bale wants Madrid stay
According to a report from The Times, Gareth Bale doesn’t want to leave Real Madrid amid the danger of getting banned for 12 games for making an obscene gesture to Atletico Madrid. He regards Madrid as the best club in the world and, hence, doesn’t want to leave.
