With the end of the season drawing near, Real Madrid has not yet finalized the contract extension for their star player, Karim Benzema. The forward’s current contract at Santiago Bernabeu is to expire at the end of the season. Despite previous reports suggesting a verbal agreement between the club and the striker, there seems to be hesitation in making the deal official.

As per a recent report, Real Madrid believes that Karim Benzema is contemplating a departure from Santiago Bernabeu when the season concludes. The forward is reportedly considering a move to Saudi Arabia during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Karim Benzema’s future, reports emerged indicating an offer from the Saudi Arabian government. They are allegedly preparing to present the Real Madrid striker with a substantial sum of €200 million. Along with additional benefits, as part of their proposal.

What are the chances of Real Madrid losing Benzema to Saudi Arabia?

Reports say that Saudi government is willing to provide Karim Benzema with a lucrative offer of €200 million over a span of two years. Additionally, they expressed their willingness to grant him image rights, advertising opportunities. Even support the establishment of schools for children.

Karim Benzema’s absence from the Real Madrid squad in their match against Getafe raised further speculation about his situation. Furthermore, his underwhelming performances in Champions League semifinal against Manchester City led to doubts regarding his dedication to the team.

Real Madrid is apprehensive that Karim Benzema may be seriously considering the offers from Saudi Arabia. It is worth noting that the Middle East region is providing players with the opportunity to earn salaries with full tax exemption. It implies that the player will not pay any taxes on the substantial €200 million wage.

Real Madrid is now on edge due to the tempting offer Benzema received. Thus, causing them to anxiously await his final decision. In the meantime, the club has initiated the search for a reliable alternative in the transfer market.
