An unexpected destination for Benzema appeared recently and the Saudi position was revealed

Famous journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Saudi officials are committed to keeping Karim Benzema alive despite his recent disagreements with Al-Ittihad Club.

The French international was late in joining the recent Al-Ittihad camp, which sparked many disagreements between him and coach Marcelo Gallardo, and the player’s relationship with the administration became very tense.

According to the Italian journalist, meetings will take place in the coming days between the player and Saudi officials to discuss his future.

The Saudi Investment Fund does not intend to allow Benzema to leave, and in the worst case they may make him leave Al-Ittihad for another Saudi club.

However, if the player is determined to leave Saudi Arabia, in this case he must make major concessions in terms of salary so that he can return to the continent of Europe.

In this context, Radio Monte Carlo said that Benzema’s former club, Lyon, has a desire to sign a contract with the 36-year-old to end his career where he began.

Perhaps what facilitates the completion of the deal is that the group that owns Lion, the Eagle Group, has very strong and distinguished relationships with the Saudi Investment Fund.

It remains to be noted that Benzema has been linked to joining Manchester United and Chelsea, while Real Madrid has closed the door on the return of his legend once again.
