Manchester United Chelsea and Arsenal have been alerted to Karim Benzema’s availability in January after Spanish giants Real Madrid told the player’s representatives to find him another club writes Tom Hopkinson of the Sunday People.

The French striker has fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu and his relationship with supporters and the Madrid-based press has reached an all-time low.

Arsenal were linked with Benzema in the summer as Real considered selling him to help finance their purchase of Gareth Bale but Gunners opted instead for Mesut Ozil.

Now Madrid will look to recoup around £17million of the £25m they gave Lyon for Benzema four years ago.
