- Benzema makes dramatic u-turn
- Talks with Real Madrid ongoing
- Forward will reject 400m offer
What is the news?
Multiple Spanish media outlets report that Karim Benzema will continue his journey with Real Madrid. After discussions with the Spanish powerhouse, the striker has decided to extend his expiring contract for at least one more season. With rumors suggesting that Benzema’s time at Real Madrid was coming to an end, this decision brings clarity and stability to his future at the club.
A Tempting Offer from Saudi Arabia
The football world was stunned when news broke that an undisclosed club from Saudi Arabia made a jaw-dropping €400 million contract proposal to Karim Benzema. The offer granted the player the freedom to choose both his preferred club and place of residence, with the endorsement of the Saudi Arabian government. Reigning champions Al-Ittihad emerged as the frontrunners in speculations surrounding this remarkable opportunity.
Currently, we await official confirmation from Real Madrid or an announcement by Benzema himself. Despite being questioned by several reporters about his future, the player has chosen to remain tight-lipped. Discussions held on Wednesday at the club are expected to resume later this week. The primary focus now appears to be securing a new contract with Real Madrid, although declining a €400 million bid seems challenging. In other news, it has been revealed that Luka Modric has also received an offer from Saudi Arabia.
