Karim Benzema is concerned that Real Madrid could sign Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
Benzema is having a difficult season with Real Madrid, scoring just twice in 11 La Liga appearances so far.
His poor start to the season has contributed to Real Madrid’s mixed form, which sees them eight points adrift of Barcelona in the title race.
As a result, Madrid may look to strengthen their forward line.
According to Don Balon, this situation has Benzema fearing that he could be replaced by Alexis Sanchez.
Alexis has been linked with Madrid numerous times, usually by Don Balon.
They seem to think the Chilean is a serious option for Real Madrid despite his closeness to Manchester City.
Overall, there’s nothing new in their report besides guess work about Benzema’s state of mind.
There’s little doubt that Alexis will be leaving Arsenal soon. The only doubt is if he’ll leave in January or at the end of the season when his contract expires.
Alexis has hardly been in the greatest form himself this season.
He has five goals in 13 appearances this season, and looks unlikely to reach the 30 goal mark as he did last season.
