Karim Benzema has been struggling with his health this season, but when he is rested and untroubled, he is still a key player for Real Madrid. Still, it is uncertain where he will be next season. His contract expires in the summer and there is interest in Saudi Arabia.
The French striker has been hampered by injuries this season, but despite this he has put up excellent numbers. He has already scored 25 goals and added 6 assists this season. When he plays, he is still a great asset for Real Madrid.
But where will Karim Benzema play next season? That is not yet known. His contract at the Santiago Bernabeu expires in the summer, and there is no concrete information in the Spanish media about the signing of a new one either.
Moreover, there is a lot of interest in the player At 35, he still has something to offer to any team in the world. The Real Madrid captain could potentially return to France, Olympique Lyon have made no secret of the fact that they would like their offspring to finish his career where he started it.
But there is also interest outside Europe. Spanish newspaper Marca has reported that Benzema has been contacted by at least one club from Saudi Arabia, where Cristiano Ronaldo already plays.
Besides Benzema, Lionel Messi has also received an offer from Saudi Arabia and if he accepts the offer, he would earn 400 million euros a year, twice as much as Ronaldo. Unfortunately, we do not know the specific figures for Benzema.
However, according to Marca, the Frenchman is ready to refuse the offer, following the example of Messi. The reason is simple. He wants to stay in Spain and specifically at Real Madrid, where he has become one of the club’s biggest legends.
Benzema has been at Real Madrid since 2009, when the Spanish giant acquired him for a now ridiculous €35 million. Now the French striker is close to reaching the 350 competitive goals mark at the Spanish club. He is the second top scorer in the club’s history, only Ronaldo is better.
