I’m really going. Karim Benzema (35) is leaving Real Madrid for Saudi Arabia.
Real announced the departure of Benzema through official channels on the 4th. Benzema’s contract expired on June 30 this year. In the first place, it was likely to remain because there was an automatic renewal clause for one year in case of winning the Ballon d’Or, but the transfer rumors were overheated when Saudi Arabia’s big offer arrived. Eventually, it became a reality.토토사이트
As of Spain, “Benzema will sign a two-year contract with Al Ittihad, Saudi Arabia, with a total salary of 200 million euros (approximately 280.5 billion won). He will be appointed as an ambassador for Saudi Arabia’s World Cup bid in 2030 and will receive a bonus.”
Benzema moved to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 at the age of 21. He has been in amazing shape ever since, reaching his 14th season. He scored 353 goals in 647 appearances in his career with Real Madrid. He has scored the second most goals in the club’s history, behind Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr).
During his 14 years at Real, he won a total of 25 titles, including 5 Champions Leagues, 5 Club World Cups, 4 UEFA Super Cups, 4 Primera Liga, 3 Copa del Rey, and 4 Super Cups.
He personally had his first Ballon d’Or last year, and was Benzema, who won the UEFA Best Player Award, La Liga Top Scorer and Champions League Top Scorer.
Despite the aftermath of injuries and poor physical condition this season, he scored 30 goals in 42 official matches, scoring the most goals in the team.
Benzema is the fourth player to leave Real after this season, after Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz and Eden Hazard.
Real will play the final match of the league against Athletic Bilbao at 1:30 am (Korean time) on the 5th. This is Benzema’s last match. The club plans to hold a ceremony on the 6th to express its dedication and gratitude.
