After concluding his 14-year stint with Los Blancos, Benzema bid farewell to Real Madrid with a goal in the 1-1 draw against Athletic Club, marking the end of the 2022/23 La Liga season.

Reliable sources indicate that the experienced striker is poised to showcase his skills in Saudi Arabia, with Al-Ittihad finalizing the terms of the deal.

Following a farewell event hosted by Real Madrid, Benzema’s move to Al-Ittihad is anticipated to be officially announced soon.

In the Middle East, Benzema will face off against his former Real teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, whose Al-Nassr team finished five points behind Al-Ittihad in the previous Saudi Pro League title race.

Nuno Espirito Santo, the ex-Wolves and Tottenham manager who joined Al-Ittihad in 2022, currently manages the club.

Saudi officials are actively pursuing renowned footballers, with reports suggesting that Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante has been approached for a potential move to Saudi Arabia after his contract expires next month.

Other high-profile players are also being targeted for lucrative transfers, including Lionel Messi, who received a staggering offer from Al-Hilal to become the world’s highest-paid player.
