Carlo Ancelotti is in the final year of his Real Madrid contract; he will then work for Brazil's national team. Having won the Champions League twice with Real Madrid, the Italian has become an icon of the team, and Florentino Perez has no doubt that he is someone he can completely rely on.
As several star players left Real in the past few years, Karim Benzema stood out the most due to the fact that he left the Real Madrid after 14 years with the club. Aside from revealing to the Italian media, Ancelotti also revealed that the great Jude Bellingham played a key role in Real's decision to get rid of Benzema so softly.
The trophy specialist was surprised to hear that Real Madrid had ever considered the possibility of bringing Victor Osimhen from Napoli instead of Benzema as their primary striker. In his reply, Ancelotti explained that the club insisted on signing Bellingham in order to make up for Benzema's absence.
After arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a deal valued at more than 100 million euros, the young Englishman has quickly established himself as one of the top players at the club.
Karim Benzema and Al Ittihad
During the first two competitive matches in which Bellingham was involved, he wore the number "5" on his back in the same way as the famous Zinedine Zidane, and he registered two goals and an assist during those matches.
In contrast, Benzema has so far been a member of Al Ittihad, but his roses are not yet blooming for some time, and problems have been reported with the coach Nun Espirito Santo, according to the media. There is a report in the Saudi media stating that the Portuguese coach does not want the Benzema, while the Ballon d'Or winner is dissatisfied with the attitude of the coach towards its work.
The question is what fate awaits Karim Benzema in Saudi Arabia. This kind of relationship with the coach can only worsen the atmosphere within the team. Will the coach or will Benzema look for happiness elsewhere or will he find a common language and solve the problem..
