Karim Benzema has reportedly revealed he would be open to the possibility of playing in the MLS after his time with Real Madrid comes to an end.
The French striker is under contract with the 13-time European champions until the summer of 2023, when he will be 35 years old. However, as he told ESPN (via Marca), he doesn’t consider age to be that important for him. It’s rather about how he feels, and he intends to keep playing for as long as his body allows him to do so without forcing.
A number of top players have spent some time late in their glittering careers in the MLS – David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Jermaine Defoe, and many others. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been linked with moves over the Atlantic in the past too, though it hasn’t happened for either of them yet.
Meanwhile, Benzema says he likes the way football is improving in the MLS, though Real are likely to try and persuade him to sign at least one more contract with them.
