Ancelotti eyes Benzema for Napoli

Carlo Ancelotti wants Karim Benzema to join him at Napoli, claim Spanish newspaper AS, but Real Madrid demand €50m.

The arrival of Ancelotti has shaken up the Partenopei, who are already preparing to sell Jorginho to Manchester City.

According to AS, the Coach really wants to be reunited with his old Real Madrid star striker Benzema.

However, the asking price is in the region of €50m and Napoli won’t pay that for someone who turns 31 in December.

This season, Benzema provided 12 goals and 11 assists in 47 club games for Real Madrid.

His wages are also going to be difficult to sustain, as he earned €8.5m net per year.
