Karim Benzema’s agent Karim Djaziri has confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain wanted to sign his client in the winter. But Karim refused.
As the French L10 writes, the executive director of the Parisian club, Leonardo, contacted the player and his representative in winter. In response, the Brazilian refused. Moreover, very soon after these negotiations, Benzema extended his contract with Real until the summer of 2022.
“We were really contacted about the transfer, but Karim signed a new contract. After the contract expires, he will be 35 years old. It’s hard to say what might happen. As for returning to the French championship, his heart will only go to Lyon, “said the player’s agent.
As you may know, Karim Benzema moved to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 from Lyon. In 150 appearances for the French club, Benzema has scored 66 goals.
Benzema talked about his future club and ending his career.
Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has spoken about the end of his career. According to the French forward, he does not rule out that the boots will be hung on the nail in his former club, Lyon:
“What I represent today, everything is Lyon’s merit. I will always be grateful to them for that. In my opinion, now is not the right time to go back there. I want to continue writing history in reality. I’m playing for the best club in the world.
As for returning to Lyon, nothing is excluded. Why not ?! ”Benzema said.
