are looking for a successor to Karim Benzema. However, the conditions are difficult. He’s young, but he has to have a lot of experience, and he has to be able to compete with Benzema. virtually none
Benzema is a veteran striker who has taken the top spot. He is evaluated as having all the parts necessary for a striker, such as his solid physical height of over 180 cm, the ability to connect with his teammates, the ability to finish in the box, and the right to deliver. Along with Robert Lewandowski and Luis Suárez, he is regarded as one of the best strikers of the 21st century and continues to perform.
He is a Real Madrid legend. Born in France, he distinguished himself at his native ‘prestigious’ Olympique Lyonnais before heading to Real. In the first year of his transfer, he lost to Gonzalo Higuain and was used in the rotation, but from the 2010-11 season he established himself as a starter.
Since then, he has led Real Madrid in its prime. He commanded Europe by forming the ‘BBC Line’ with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. During this period, Real achieved an incredible record of three consecutive victories in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) and added countless trophies such as Spanish La Liga and Copa del Rey to the showcase.
But it didn’t get much spotlight. It is because he was buried by ‘superstar’ Ronaldo and ‘next Ballon d’Or’ Bale. Moreover, since the scoring was focused on Ronaldo and Bale, Benzema focused on link play and was labeled a ‘link striker’. In the 2017-18 season, he also recorded a humiliating number of goals as a striker, scoring only 5 goals in the league.
From the 2018-19 season, when Ronaldo left and Bale entered a downward trend, Benzema soared. Real rebuilt the team around him and it was always Benzema’s job to finish. He enjoyed a ‘second prime’ by scoring more than 20 league goals for the first time since the 2015-156 season. Last season was the peak. He scored 27 goals in the league and 15 in the UCL, becoming the top scorer in both competitions. Real won the league and UCL titles thanks to Benzema’s performance, and he won the 2022 Ballon d’Or.토토사이트
Benzema continues to perform well this season. Although the impact was lower than last season due to injuries and other reasons, he scored 17 goals and 3 assists in 21 league games, ranking second in scoring after Robert Lewandowski (22 goals).
Real are preparing to renew the contract. According to European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano, Real have not changed their plans to stay with Benzema until 2024 and it is only a matter of time before a renewal becomes official.
At the same time, Real are also looking for a successor. Spain’s ‘Marca’ reported, “Real Madrid want a number 9 striker who can compete with Benzema this summer. He must be young but experienced and able to compete with Benzema.”
