He refused to move to the Saudi League and is looking forward to staying with Real Madrid.. The offer of millions did not change Benzema's position

The future of French star Karim Benzema, Real Madrid captain, has not yet been discussed with the team, although the situation has changed from the French international, who has regained his level in recent days.

Benzema returned to normal in scoring goals and presenting a remarkable level for which he deserved the Golden Ball award last season, and confirmed that he is still the main element that coach Carlo Ancelotti and the "Merengue" were looking for to achieve successes and victories.

Based on this, it is almost decided – according to the Spanish newspaper "Marca" – that Real Madrid will offer Benzema to extend his contract for an additional year, and that his future in the "Santiago Bernabeu" is not in doubt.

Although the contract of the former Lyon striker expires on June 30, he entered into negotiations with the management of the Madrid club to extend it for an additional year. According to “Marca”, the 2023-2024 season could be his last, as the Madrid club signed Brazilian striker Andrek, and he is still looking for a way to lure the Norwegian giants Erling Haaland after the failure of the transfer deal for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.

The newspaper states that someone quoted Benzema as thinking a lot about the offer from Saudi Arabia, but millions of euros did not change his mind about staying with “Los Blancos” for at least one more season.

It seems that the Frenchman will not be among those who take the step of moving to Saudi Arabia, which is what Cristiano Ronaldo did in the winter Mercato, because he still has a lot to offer in the Spanish League.

The story between Saudi Arabia and Benzema does not end with a football show, as it also includes the launch of a football academy bearing the striker's name and image.

The agreement may go further, as Saudi Arabia and Benzema are in perfect harmony, but he wants to play for Real at least until the summer of 2024.

And if Benzema's contract is renewed, this means that he played 15 seasons with the "Royal", during which he won 24 titles, and this number is likely to rise.

Benzema, 35, was Real's top scorer firmly on doubts about his physical condition, by scoring a hat-trick (twice) in 4 days, one of which was in the home of rivals Barcelona.
