Karim Benzema has declined to speak about his future

The 35-year-old Frenchman is said to have told Real of his intention to quit, with newly crowned Saudi Pro League winners Al-Ittihad preparing to sign him to a lucrative contract until 2025 worth well over €200 million. Benzema was previously thought to have agreed to a contract extension in Madrid, but it went unsigned, allowing him to join former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who signed with Al-Nassr in January, in Saudi Arabia instead.

Benzema received the Marca Legend award on Thursday night. He was asked about his future during a Q&A session on stage, but instead pointed out that there is still one game left in La Liga this season.

“Why do I have to talk about the future? I’m at Real Madrid. The reality is another, not what is said on the internet,” said Benzema.

It is unclear to what is the ‘reality’ he was referring to.

In addition Karim Benzema says he is “focused on their next match” after speculation about his future at the club.

“I am very proud of my work,” Benzema added subsequently.

“I enjoy every moment in Madrid. Going to Valdebebas to train is not a job. In my head, I enjoy Madrid. Yesterday, today and tomorrow in training.”

Benzema reflected at his time with Real Madrid

Benzema additionally reflected on his time at Real, which he joined in 2009 after earning a name for himself as a juvenile prodigy at Lyon.

“Proud of my career,” he said. 

“I remember when I signed for Real Madrid that I was a child, 21 years old. I just wanted to enjoy myself and look at all that I’ve won. There is no other club like Real Madrid, playing at the Santiago Bernabu, the place where the greatest of this sport have played. It was always my dream because it is the best club in history.”

“[Florentinto Perez] is the man who has allowed me to be here today. The man who signed Zinedine Zidane and the man who brought me to Real Madrid.”
