The Real Madrid star picked up a knock while on international duty with France this month and will now miss the World Cup.His first full training session in Qatar was abruptly cut short after suffering a thigh injury. Benzema was taken for a scan in Doha and it initially looked as if the 34-year-old would only miss Les Bleu's opener against Australia on Tuesday, November 22. But, the striker's injury is worse than first thought with France confirming that he will take no further part in the nation's defence of their world title. With Real Madrid two points behind table-toppers Barcelona in La Liga, Los Blancos were initially worried that Benzema would be out for some time and that their title charge would therefore falter.As a result, various reports linked Ronaldo with a sensational return to the Santiago Bernabeu. Spanish outlet SPORT report that the Manchester United striker offered his services amid Benzema's injury.But it's said that the Frenchman will only be out for three weeks, with Marca reporting that Real Madrid are not expected to make a move for the Portugal international. This leaves the door wide open again for Todd Boehly to finally complete the signing his pushed so hard to complete in the summer under former boss Thomas Tuchel.

The 25-year-old midfielder was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer as the Spanish giants looked to resolve their financial troubles.Speaking to De Telegraaf, ahead of the Netherlands' World Cup opener against Senegal, the midfielder criticised a 'campaign with lots of lies'. A handful of Spanish outlets reported that De Jong was not willing to take a pay cut in order to help Barcelona solve their financial woes. But, despite the saga, he insisted that he's happy in Barcelona. De Jong said: "I am very happy in Barcelona. When I play it's great and in terms of living here life is perfect. I see myself in Barcelona for as long as possible. I personally hope for another eight or 10 years.""One day a paper published details from my contract," he added. "I didn't leak it and only one other party knew about this, so it had to be the club who did this. Suddenly there was a letter in which the question was asked whether my contract was still valid because the previous president made the contract."I found it very annoying that the club did this, but I had no further influence on things. I blame these people [those at Barca who wanted him out], but I have nothing to do with them. Yes, they are Barca for me because they lead the club. But I don't see them when I'm at the club. I have nothing to do with them in my daily life."ShareComments08:31Kieran HornMendy given blame by ex-Chelsea star after World Cup errorsChelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has come under a barrage of criticism following Senegal's 2-0 defeat to the Netherlands where many are of the belief he could have done better with both goals.The opening 80 minutes of the match saw a significant lack of goalmouth action, but PSV forward Cody Gakpo, who is wanted by Arsenal, came up with a crucial goal for the Netherlands six minutes from time beating Mendy to a Frenkie De Jong cross.Mendy rashly sprinted out of his goal attempting to punch the ball away but was beaten to it by Gakpo and there were some disagreements over who was at fault for the first goal but the second strike scored by Davy Klassen saw the blame undoubtedly fall at the feet of MendyThe 30-year-old palmed a tame Memphis Depay shot straight into the path of second-half substitute Klassen and was told by many including Ally McCoist on ITV co-commentary that he should have done better.Former Chelsea and Lioness forward Lianne Sanderson, who was on commentary for talkSPORT 2 agreed with McCoist after also believing Mendy was at fault for the first goal.Sanderson on talkSPORT 2 said: "Again I’m going to ask questions of Mendy. It wasn’t that strong a shot by Memphis, he almost pea-rolled it back to Klaassen. He’s got to do better there. I think both the goals were Edouard Mendy’s fault."ShareComments07:50Kieran HornMason Mount sends clear message to Graham PotterMason Mount thrived in a deeper role in England's 6-2 World Cup win over Iran in a midfield trio with Chelsea targets Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice.The Chelsea star has mostly seen his minutes come as part of a front three or in a number ten role behind the striker but following his performance, backed up by a number of impressve stats, in a slightly deeper role, he may have shown Graham Potter he could be used in a free-roaming attacking midfield position.Read the full story hereMason Mount and Jude Bellingham starred as part of England's midfield trio with Declan Rice deployed just behind them (Image: (Photo by Marvin Ibo Guengoer - GES Sportfoto/Getty Images))ShareComments07:32Kieran HornChelsea interested in RashfordTodd Boehly is a keen admirer of wantaway Man United star Cristiano Ronaldo but a potential move for the Portuguese international may be difficult to complete, however a possible move for his team-mate Marcus Rashford could be on the cards.Simon Jones on Substack has indicated that Rashford, who was of interest to Chelsea with Thomas Tuchel at the forefront, is still on the Blues radar despite the German coaches departure after being somewhat unsettled by the arrival of Ronaldo.He said: “His contract situation is an interesting one, and he has been unsettled since Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival.“I’m told Chelsea are still keeping an eye on the situation still now, even after Tuchel’s departure.”Rashford's United contract expires in the summer, although Erik Ten Hag is a keen admirer of the forward and will hope to seal a new deal after the World Cup.Chelsea are closely monitoring Marcus Rashford's situation at Manchester United with the Englishman's contract set to expire in 2023 (Image: (Photo by Matthew Ashton - AMA/Getty Images))ShareComments07:18Kieran HornGood morningDay three of the World Cup is likely to come with plenty of Chelsea news, so stay tuned for all the updates.ShareComments
