Real Madrid has activated the option to extend the contract with Karim Benzema until 2024. However, this will be the Frenchman’s last season with the team.
According to an unwritten rule, a player who wins the Golden Ball has the right to automatically extend his contract with the club. Thus, Real took advantage of this rule.
Benzema is aware that next season will be his last at Real Madrid. Brazilian forward Endrick will join the team in 2024, and the club is also looking for new options to strengthen its attack.
It was previously reported that the Madrid club management is interested in acquiring Manchester City striker Erling Haaland.
Benzema played 19 matches in the current La Liga season, scoring 14 goals and giving three assists.
