Arsenal ask Real to give Benzema out for getting their key player

According to latest news coming from both Spanish and UK sources, Arsenal management, which have almost made peace with losing Chilean 28-year old star Alexis Sanchez soon, asked Real Madrid, pursuing former Barça player, to agree to a swap having French international striker Karim Benzema (29) move on the other way around and join Gunners. Blancos, however, might still decide to extend the latter’s contract long-term.
