Real Madrid would have decided on the future of Karim Benzema, at the end of the contract on June 30.
Real Madrid fell from above. In search of a second title in a row in the Champions League, the Merengue were corrected by Manchester City (4-0), Wednesday evening at the Etihad Stadium, in the semi-final return of the most prestigious of European competitions ( 1-1 on the way). A setback synonymous with the end of the cycle for many, but not for Florentino Perez…
Indeed, according to information from Relief, the Madrid president would like to extend Karim Benzema’s lease for an additional season, while the former Lyonnais’ current contract will end on June 30. The White House boss is also said to be keen to extend his two midfield legends, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
🚨💣 Real Madrid’s plan for the summer:
-Renew important players like Benzema, Modric and Kroos.
-Sign Fran Garcia and Jude Bellingham.
-Renew Brahim Diaz.
-Look into the possibility of a back-up striker, NOT an elite striker.@relief #rmalive pic.twitter.com/lhL2lCxuVB

A competitor for Benzema?
In addition, during the next summer transfer window, the residents of the Santiago Bernabéu would aim to recruit the left side of Rayo Vallecano, Fran Garcia, as well as the midfielder of Borussia Dortmund, Jude Bellingham. But also a striker capable of replacing Karim Benzema, who has suffered from many physical problems this season. Finally, the Madrid decision-makers intend to extend the contract of Brahim Diaz, currently on loan from AC Milan and who could be kept in Carlo Ancelotti’s squad next season.
