Failing to find a “9” for this summer, Real Madrid renews more than ever its confidence in Karim Benzema.
Karim Benzema at Real Madrid, it’s a business that works and it won’t stop anytime soon. A year or two ago, the possibility of a return to Olympique Lyonnais to finish his career there had been considered. But now, that is no longer relevant. Indeed, KB9 will sign a new contract with the White House, and this one covers two seasons. It will therefore 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 have not been reluctant to extend their 34-year-old striker, especially given his performance this season. Sharper than ever, more effective in important moments, Karim Benzema is absolutely essential at the present time.
The Madrid newspaper affirms it, the agreement was reached there is little, even if the outcome was not in doubt. Discussions all the easier since there will be no weight competition for Karim Benzema next season, the arrival of a new striker of international stature no longer being on the agenda. On his return from vacation, the Frenchman should therefore sign a new contract which will add to his long loyalty to the merengue jersey.
Zero competition for Karim Benzema
A case settled therefore for Real Madrid, which nevertheless raises questions about its attack, since almost everything depends on Karim Benzema. The “Nueve” should not be injured or experience a serious drop in speed, because behind, Jovic and Mariano are not yet the weight. But Florentino Pérez seems convinced that one of his longtime proteges will still rock the house for this 2022-2023 season.
