Liga Spanyol: Real Madrid tidak terburu-buru datangkan penyerang anyar

Jakarta (ANTARA) – It is reported that Spanish League giant Real Madrid will not be in a hurry to bring in a new striker in the player transfer market this summer.

Quoted from football-espana, Saturday, this step was taken by Real Madrid because they believed in Karim Benzema, who was still considered capable of carrying out his duties as the spearhead of Los Blancos.

According to reports from Marca, club president Florentino Perez and coach Carlo Ancelotti have faith in Benzema and are ready to extend the Frenchman’s contract until June 2024.

Previously, the Italian coach compared his striker Karim Benzema to a high-quality wine that gets better with age (7/4).

Benzema’s contract is known to expire in June 2023 and Real Madrid assess the 34-year-old player can still display his best abilities for the next two years.

After being able to extend Benzema’s contract later, Madrid is expected to start looking for a striker who is considered suitable as the successor of the former Olympique Lyon player.

One of the names that emerged was Kylian Mbappe, but recently the young French player decided to extend his contract at Paris Saint-Germain until 2025 and made his relationship with Real Madrid quite tenuous.

Another alternative that Real Madrid has is Erling Haaland who in this season’s transfer market has just joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund. The Norwegian will have a release clause of 150 million euros (approximately Rp. 2.3 trillion) which becomes active in the summer of 2024.

Last season, Karim Benzema became one of the important actors in Real Madrid’s success in winning the Spanish League and Champions League by contributing 44 goals and 15 assists from 46 appearances in various competitions.
