Outspoken pundit Rodney Marsh is known for a lot of things, but is very rarely at the forefront of the latest transfer speculation. However, that hasn’t stopped him from going all ITK by claiming that Real Madrid have accepted Arsenal’s offer for striker Karim Benzema.
However, the former Manchester City striker was just as quick to point out that just because Real had accepted The Gunners’ offer that doesn’t mean anything is going to happen…
For the deal to go ahead it would require Benzema to agree to what Arsenal have put on the table.
Sadly for Arsenal fans, Marsh failed to reveal how he knows that Los Blancos have accepted Arsenal’s transfer bid, leaving onlookers to assume that the talking-head is simply an ITK.
