The striker may remain at the “Santiago Bernabeu” until 2023. It is considered that given the fact that the term of the agreement 31-year old player expires in 2021, Madrid wants to add another two years.
Nevertheless, Benzema, apparently, decided to think first, if he can keep his current level for another four years. By the time he turns 36 years old.
Recall that in the “real” French moved in July 2009 for 35 million euros from Lyon. The player salary at that time was 6.5 million euros per year. Now it gets a 7.2 in the same currency. Benzema became the fourth acquisition of real Madrid in the off-season after the Brazilian player Kaka, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Spaniard Raul Albiol. None of these players in the “real” anymore.
