It has been made official that Karim Benzema has left Real Madrid after 15 glittering seasons and after winning 25 Trophies for the club and he has hit 350 Goals for Real Madrid which is the second most in the club’s history after Cristiano Ronaldo and it was hoped that he would extend his contract and play for Real Madrid for one more season but the offer from Al Ittihad was so big that he was not able to ignore.

Karim Benzema is the second big player who has joined the league after Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al Hilal last year and looking at him a lot more players will join the league and there is no issue related to money because all the clubs have a lot of money and so they can bring the best players to their league. 

So, let’s talk about whether this was the right decision which was made by Karim Benzema:


Yes, Karim Benzema made the right decision for his career

The age of Karim Benzema is 35 and he is in the last few years of his football career and he is still at his best even at this time and a new challenge is always something that excites the big players and the Saudi Arabia league has been growing in stature and Karim Benzema will add a lot of money and credibility to the league and he will not have that much problem adjusting because they are his people.

Karim Benzema will make more than $200 million per season which will make him one of the most expensive players in history and he will have a similar contract to Cristiano Ronaldo Al Nassr and in this contract will include not only money for playing but he will also be a campaign ambassador for the Saudi Arabia World Cup campaign for 2030 and they are generating quite the starcast. Karim Benzema will make the Matches between Al Ittihad and Al Hilal very interesting because it will be former teammates against each other and more people will watch the matches.

Karim Benzema did all he could at Real Madrid as he won 25 Trophies including the most coveted Ballon D’or which is the top individual award in football and he has won the Champions league 5 times and the LA Liga multiple times as well so he is right in wanting a new career opportunity and more big time players will join the Saudi Arabia league in the next few years because money talks and the money they will offer will be such that it will be difficult to say no because not everyone is Lionel Messi who can say no to a $1 Billion contract to play for FC Barcelona. And those players should think about themselves and their family because the fans will not live their life for them.
