Karim Benzema is reportedly unhappy in Saudi Arabia and wants to return to Europe.
“Benzema realized that Saudi Arabia is not a country for him and his football,” journalist José Félix Díaz told Marca.
Díaz also responded to rumors that Benzema could return to Real Madrid.
“The doors of Real Madrid are closed for him, like they were for the rest of the legends who left,” Díaz said.
Of course, there are several European clubs that would be interested in signing Benzema, but his priority is Real Madrid. He understands that he is not a priority for the club right now, so he is willing to move to another team.
Manchester United and Chelsea have been mentioned as potential destinations, but there are also other Champions League clubs that would be interested in signing the French striker until the end of the season.
Benzema believes he can still play at the highest level for another one or two years. He is particularly interested in the Premier League, but he would also be open to a return to Olympique Lyon, even though the club is currently in relegation.
