As expected, Karim Benzema offers an end to his career in the Gulf. He signed this Tuesday with the Saudi club Al Ittihad for a period of 3 years, but above all for the tidy sum of 100 million euros per year.
The information was confirmed to AFP by an internal source at the club.
The 2022 Ballon d’Or, who spent 14 years at Real Madrid, will say goodbye to the merengue public this Tuesday evening at a press conference.
Having made his debut in Lyon, Benzema, 35, can look back on an impressive track record: five Champions Leagues, five Club World Cups, four European Super Cups, four Spanish championships, three Cups du Roi and four Spanish Super Cups, making a total of 25 titles.
In the Saudi league, BK9 will reunite with former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Al-Nasser’s side last season from Manchester United. There are also expected, according to insistent information, other names like Lionel Messi, Luca Modrich Jordi Alba or Sergio Busquets.
