It seems that Real Madrid will continue to accompany Karim Benzema.
On the 16th (Korean time), The Athletic said, “Real Madrid and Benzema will renew the contract for one year.” Benzema’s contract with Real Madrid expires at the end of this season. As much as Real Madrid and Benzema want each other, a signing is likely to happen quickly.
Benzema is a living legend of Real Madrid. Leaving Lyon in 2009 and wearing a Real Madrid shirt, Benzema led Real Madrid’s heyday. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale’s ‘BBC Line’ has been called the best trio in history. Benzema, who focused on supporting Ronaldo and Bale, emerged as a leading role in 2018 when Ronaldo left. 스포츠토토
Last season was the peak. He exploded 27 goals in the league and 15 goals in the European Champions League. Real Madrid won the league and Champions League double thanks to Benzema’s performance. Benzema won his first Ballon d’Or in 2022. Benzema’s performance continues this season. He has 19 goals-5 assists, though not as well as last season due to his injury. With 341 goals for Real Madrid, Benzema is the second most goalscorer in Real Madrid’s history, behind Ronaldo with 450 goals.
Benzema said vaguely, “It’s another matter to talk about renewing the contract. You don’t know what happens in football,” but Real Madrid was in Benzema’s mind. Of course, there were big offers from Saudi Arabia, but Benzema wanted to stay. Real Madrid also wanted Benzema as they were unsure of signing Kylian Mbappe and Elling Haaland. Both parties have already reached an oral agreement.
