Karim Benzema To Leave Real Madrid

Karim Benzema after 14 years with Spanish giants Real Madrid is set to leave.

The Ballon d’Or-winning striker, who joined Madrid from Lyon in 2009, will depart on a free transfer when the season ends.

Benzema, who had a year left on his contract, is set to move to Saudi Arabia after receiving a “record offer” from Al-Ittihad, according to Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague.

Benzema, 35, won five Champions Leagues and four La Liga titles with Madrid.

Saudi state-run Al Ekhbariya television station reported on Sunday that Benzema will sign a two-year deal with Al-Ittihad.

He is the third first-team player confirmed to be leaving Madrid in two days, after it was announced on Saturday that both Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio will also depart this summer.

The Frenchman won a total of 25 major titles with Real Madrid, a record for the club.
