Striker Karim Benzema received an astronomical offer from Saudi Arabia last week Friday. To the dismay of all Real Madrid fans, the Frenchman is seriously considering it and should make a decision to leave by the end of the week!
Benzema is an integral part in the Los Blancos squad, who stands out especially after the departure of the star Cristiano Ronaldo.
The pacy striker shone the brightest last season in particular, when he managed to snatch the Ballon d’Or for the first time in his career after triumphing in La Liga or the Champions League.
However, last Friday a very lucrative transfer offer landed on his desk and yes, once again from the Arab world. It happened before the league game against Sevilla FC.
Real Madrid have an extension of the current contract for their forward, specifically until 2024.
However, the signing may not happen at all, as Benzema is seriously considering the offer from Saudi Arabia. After all, this fact is confirmed by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Frenchman’s final word is expected soon, around the end of this week. The inner circle around the Ballon d’Or winner has no plans to stretch anything after receiving the offer.
Thus, exciting days are coming for the football world, which may bring another transfer bombshell before the summer transfer period starts.
For Real Madrid fans, on the other hand, the days are full of uncertainty and dread as Benzema forms one of the cornerstones of Ancelotti’s line-up.
Benzema’s value currently stands at around €35 million, which at 35 years old is still a very respectable price tag.
However, it is irrelevant in the current constellation as the forward’s current contract expires at the end of June this year, a month from now!
He would then go to Saudi Arabia as a free agent. Three clubs are interested in Benzema’s services, namely Al-Hilal FC, Al-Shabab Riyadh and Al-Ittihad Jeddah.
