Karim Benzema Signs New Real Madrid Contract

Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema has extended his contract at the Bernabeu until the summer of 2021.

29-year-old Benzema, who joined Real for €35m from Olympique Lyonnais in 2009, joins teammates, Marcelo, Isco and Carvajal in committing their future to the Los Blancos.

“A move away? When you’re at a club, especially one like Real Madrid, and are getting regular minutes then you have no reason to look for a move elsewhere.” Benzema told BeIn Sports last week.

“There are six or seven players here who have now been playing together for six or seven years, I think this is one of Real Madrid’s best periods ever, it’s that simple because the team is really very strong.”

The Frenchman has won a total of 14 trophies at the Bernabeu, including two La Liga and three Champions League titles.
