Karim Benzema, the captain of Real Madrid, won’t talk about his future. His contract at the Bernabeu is coming to an end, and he is likely to move to Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia this summer.

After 14 great years with Los Blancos, during which he won 24 titles, played in 647 games, and scored 353 goals, Benzema is set to become a free agent at the end of the month.

90min has learned that the Frenchman, who is 35 years old, has already told Real that he wants to leave. The newly-crowned Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad are expected to offer him a lucrative deal until 2025 that is worth well over €200m.

Benzema may have already agreed to a contract extension in Madrid, but it was never signed. This made it possible for him to join his former partner Cristiano Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia, where he signed with Al-Nassr in January.

The Marca Legend award was given to Benzema at an event on Thursday night.

During a Q&A on stage, he was asked about his future. Instead of giving an answer, he brought up the fact that La Liga still has one more game to play this season.

“Why do I need to talk about what will happen? I’m at Real Madrid. The truth is different from what people say on the Internet,” the player said.

It’s not clear what he meant by the word “reality.”


“I am very proud of my work,” Benzema said. “I enjoy every moment in Madrid. Training at Valdebebas isn’t a job. I like Madrid in my mind. “Trained yesterday, today, and tomorrow.”

Benzema also talked about his time with Real Madrid. He joined the team in 2009 after making a name for himself at Lyon as a talented young player.

“Proud of my career,” he told her. “I remember that I was only 21 years old when I signed with Real Madrid. I just wanted to have fun and see how much I’ve won. Real Madrid is the only team that plays at the Santiago Bernabu, where the best players in this sport have played. It’s always been my dream because it’s the best club ever. He’s the one who made it possible for me to be here today. The person who brought Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid and who brought me there.”
