Karim Benzema still does not know what will become of him next summer, because, if everything goes as planned, the Real Madrid fichará and Erling Braut Haaland. At that moment, the Frenchman will have to decide if he wants to take a step back, and begin to be a substitute, because the Norwegian will arrive to be a fixed, or change of scene. For the moment, he faces this season knowing that, perfectly, it may be the last to happen in The Santander League.
More than 12 years have passed since his arrival, and he is one of the captains and one of the idols of the fans. Not only that, but he has been the great star of the team since Cristiano Ronaldo signed by Juventus of Turin. He is one of Florentino Pérez’s protégés, and many thought that he would finish his career in the capital of Spain. Although now he has received an offer from a club that wants to prevent him, and wants to enjoy his last days in the elite.
We are talking about Olympique de Lyon, where he started his career, and took his first steps as a professional. There they hope that he will return and spend his last days, with the intention of assembling a competitive team, capable of revalidating the Ligue 1 title, which they have not won for a long time. Although, with the presence of the almighty Paris Saint-Germain by Mauricio Pochettino, they have it really complicated. But it is quite an interesting challenge.
Benzema always made it clear that he would one day return to his origins, and it remains to be seen if he will fulfill that promise. Carlo Ancelotti, for his part, will try to convince him to stay and become one of the footballers with the longest seasons in the history of the Santiago Bernabéu. Despite being 33 years old, which will be 34 in December, he is still giving authentic recitals every time he plays. At this European Championship we were able to attest to that.
To all this, we must remember that he still has a contract in force, so they would have to negotiate with Madrid first. Not long ago, it renewed until 2023.
