Karim Benzema New Contract – Why is Real Madrid offering the French striker a new deal?
Since joining Real Madrid in 2009, Benzema has been one of the most consistent performers for the club. He has remained the main attacking threat for Real Madrid since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus. The 33-year-old has also gone on to win all the trophies Los Blancos has won over the last decade and is often deemed heavily underrated amongst top strikers in world football.
Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez has often expressed his desire to see Benzema hang up his boots at the La Liga side. The French international is also interested in remaining at the club with both parties having a verbal agreement since March.
With Euros around the corner after the completion of the previous campaign, Benzema was away on international duty and summer vacations before returning to the club. He is not expected to not delay the deal any further and sign the dotted line.
