Karim Benzema will play his final game for Real Madrid this weekend.
The French striker, whose market value is €35 million, is on the verge of leaving the Spanish club.
And he will likely move to Saudi Arabia in the summer transfer window.
Karim Benzema has been an extraordinary performer for Real Madrid since arriving from Lyon in July 2009.
The 35-year-old was a promising attacking prospect when he left his boyhood club.
And while Benzema’s role was to play second-fiddle to Ronaldo and Bale, he was a brilliant supporting cast.
But Benzema’s stock has skyrocketed since Ronaldo left Real Madrid in 2018, as he became Los Blancos’ talismanic striker.
Injuries have troubled the 35-year-old this season, but he still has a solid tally of 30 goals and six assists.
Meanwhile, his market value remains a respectable €35 million despite his advancing years.
But Benzema’s days at Real Madrid seem numbered amid emerging interest from Saudi Arabia.
Recent reports have claimed that the French striker is considering the offer from Saudi Arabia.
The latest bombshell has revealed that the experienced striker will play his last game for Real Madrid this weekend before leaving in the summer transfer window.
The update comes in the wake of suggestions in March that Real Madrid would tie Benzema to a new contract.
It will thus be interesting to see if Real Madrid can convince the Frenchman to snub the Saudi Arabian lure and remain at the Santiago Bernabeu.
