Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema signs one-year contract extension. The deal will take the striker into his 14th year with the Spanish club.
Club captain Karim Benzema has signed a one-year contract extension with Real Madrid keeping him at the Bernabeu until 2023.
Benzema, 33, arrived at the Bernabeu in 2009 and has scored 281 goals in his 12-year spell, including more than 20 goals in each of the past three La Liga seasons.
The France international is the club’s fifth-highest goalscorer of all time. He has started the current campaign in fine form, scoring twice in Real’s opening-day 4-1 victory over Alaves last week.
Benzema returned to the French national team for the delayed Euro 2020 this summer, scoring four times, and remains a pivotal figure at club level under Carlo Ancelotti.
His renewal follows that of Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who signed a new five-year contract with the club earlier this week to extend his stay until June 2026.
