He has reportedly received a record $428 million offer to play for a football team in Saudi Arabia.
Benzema could earn €100 million a year if he leaves now. However, Real Madrid is hoping the 35-year-old accepts their offer to stay for one more season before they spend heavily on a striker in 2024.
The French footballer and Ballon d’Or winner’s contract expires this summer, therefore, he will be free to sign with any team. He is lined up for a mega-money move to the Saudi football team.
Benzema has reportedly been offered $428 million to be a part of Saudi Arabia.
The French international would have no shortage of offers if he decided to leave the Spanish team after 14 years. Meanwhile, Real Madrid is eager to extend its contract.
Benzema’s Link With Saudi
According to the Spanish news outlet, Benzema has been given a $428 million, two-year contract to join an unnamed Saudi Pro League team.
It would entail continuing the lucrative career of former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Al Nassr at the beginning of the year.
Any prospective contract for Benzema would reportedly entail ambassadorial responsibilities to advance Saudi Arabia as well as a potential World Cup bid in 2030.
The plan would also include Lionel Messi receiving a contract offer from a Saudi team. Although insiders close to both players swear no contracts have yet been inked, Al Hilal is currently optimistic about preparations for Benzema and Lionel Messi for the upcoming season.
All of this is part of a larger effort to make the Saudi Pro League the most alluring league for megastars of the game when they enter their thirties. The nation is steadily working to lower that age and turn it into a true homegrown powerhouse.
