Manchester United legend Andy Cole has said he’s in support of Manchester United signing Real Madrid legend Karim Benzema.
The 36-year-old is currently unsettled in Saudi Arabia, and reports are now linking him with a move to the Premier League – with Manchester United and Chelsea believed to be interested in the former Real Madrid striker.
Asked if United should look to sign Benzema this month, Cole told Betfred: “150%. I would sign him if it was only for a training session.
“I was very surprised when he left Real Madrid in the summer, but I understand why it happened.
“That money he’s earning in Saudi Arabia is generational wealth. It’s for his kids and his kids’ kids.
“When you’re at that age in your career and you’ve already won four La Liga titles, five Champions League trophies and the Ballon d’Or, I can understand why he went to Saudi.
“Could he do it in the Premier League at his age? 100% considering the way he looks after himself.
“If Manchester United have the opportunity to sign him, then they should definitely try and make that happen.”
