French striker Karim Benzema is in line for a new long-term contract at Real Madrid, AS has learned.
The experienced forward has a deal until June 2019 at Santiago Bernabeu, and he will be offered an extension for two or three years.
This may come as a surprise considering that Benzema’s performances this season have not been of the highest standard, with the 29-year-old having scored mere 5 league goals so far.
But, even though everybody at the club knows he needs to do better, the Frenchman is seen as a valuable member of the squad and is expected to remain at Real Madrid for years to come.
Karim Benzema had joined los Blancos in a mega money deal from Lyon back in 2009 and he went on to score 116 goals in 230 La Liga appearances for the Spanish giants, winning one league trophy in the process.
