Karim Benzema wants more, Real says yes
For lack of finding a “9” for this summer, Real Madrid renews more than ever its confidence in Karim Benzem
Karim Benzema at Real Madrid is a business that works and it will not stop soon. A year or two ago, the hypothesis of a return to Olympique Lyonnais to finish his career had been considered. But now, it is no longer news. Indeed, KB9 will sign a new contract with the White House, and it is for two seasons. It will be valid until June 2024, and will certainly put possible bonuses, especially if the French international wins the Ballon d’Or or even the World Cup. According to Marca, Real Madrid did not balk at extending their 34-year-old striker, especially given his performance again this season. Sharper than ever, more effective in important moments, Karim Benzema is totally indispensable at the moment.
The Madrid newspaper states that the agreement was found a short time ago, even if the outcome was not in doubt. Discussions are all the easier since there will be no competition for Karim Benzema next season, the arrival of a new striker of international stature is no longer on the agenda. When he returns from vacation, the Frenchman should sign a new contract that will add to his long loyalty to the Merengue shirt.
Zero competition for Karim Benzema
A case of settled for Real Madrid, which nevertheless asks questions about its attack, given that everything depends or almost Karim Benzema. The “Nueve” should not get injured or experience a serious decline, because behind him, Jovic and Mariano do not currently have the weight. But Florentino Perez seems to be convinced that one of his long-time protégés will still be a big hit in the 2022-2023 season.
