Benzema or Bordeaux?

Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson has been told by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas that he will not be able to sign the highly rated striker Karim Benzema.

Aulas has told Ferguson that the closest he will get to signing Benzema is a free bottle of wine from the year of the player's birth.

"As we are people of fair play, we have brought a bottle of red wine chosen from the year Benzema was born," he told The Sun. "It's from 1987 - a very fine wine.”

"Instead of buying Benzema, he will get a bottle of fine Bordeaux."
