Indisputable players at Real Madrid, there are plenty. But if there’s one Los Blancos can’t afford to lose, it’s Karim Benzema. Unlike players like Luka Modric for example, the Frenchman doesn’t even have a real replacement in case of injury or absence, and Carlo Ancelotti knows he is the undisputed leader of his attack.
But necessarily, the age of the French invites the people of Madrid to ask themselves questions. Not planned on his services, since he has surely never been as good as this season, but on his replacement in the medium / long term. On the side of AS, we are being revealed more information about his situation today. We learn in particular that the player could well have a hidden clause in his contract.
An automatic extension?
In the event of obtaining the Ballon d’Or – which seems quite realistic – his contract would be automatically extended by one year, until 2024. All this with a nice financial bonus. Which suits Real Madrid well, since the Spanish media explains to us that in the offices of the Bernabéu, we are counting on the Frenchman for the next two seasons.
The media explains that in 2024, Erling Haaland will have a clause which will allow him to free himself from Manchester City rather easily, and that the Merengues will go on the attack to make the Norwegian the replacement for the player trained at OL. Karim Benzema will therefore be the offensive leader of the Merengues until the summer of 2024, when he will have to leave his place. Benzema and Real Madrid, so it’s far from over!
