Benzema Desperate To Win Ballon d’Or

Published

on

Real Madrid forward, Karim Benzema, has admitted winning this year’s Ballon d’Or prize remains his priority.

According to the France international, winning means several different things to him.

Benzema finished behind Chelsea’s Jorginho, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and winner, Paris Saint-Germain superstar Lionel Messi.
But he has now said: “Finishing 4th, 3rd, 2nd or 30th… it’s all the same, what counts is winning.

“For me, the Ballon d’Or is for players who carry their team, score during difficult moments and win trophies.

“My chances of winning the Ballon d’Or in 2022? Why not? We could set it as an objective. I will do everything possible to play better than I did last season.”

The 33-year-old almost led Los Blancos to the LaLiga title last season, scoring 23 goals. They missed out by two points to city rivals Atletico Madrid.

Benzema also led the France national team to the UEFA Nations League this year.

Manchester United Reject Signing Neymar

Published

on

Manchester United reportedly decided against signing Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar in a swap deal with former midfielder Paul Pogba back in 2019, Express UK reports.

Neymar has continued to be linked with a departure from PSG this summer as he’s irked by comments made by the club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Al-Khelaifi had recently said: “A possible departure for Neymar this summer?

“What I can tell you is that we expect all players to do a lot more than last season.

“You have to become humble, you have to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls that change a game.”

However, one team linked with the 30-year-old Brazilian international is Manchester United, although they could have already acquired him three years ago.

Man United’s former chief executive Ed Woodward rejected the opportunity of bringing Neymar to Old Trafford.

PSG reportedly approached Man United about the possibility of exchanging Neymar with Pogba, but the Premier League giants deemed the former Barcelona star to be too expensive.

Neymar’s wages of around £606,000 a week reportedly put Woodward off, and the former executive was also keen to keep Pogba at United.
