SHOCKING NEWS: Coming live from Fabrizio Romano, with the transfer window ending today Karim Benzema, the former Real Madrid star, is set for a remarkable move to the Premier League football club Chelsea this month. Chelsea were seriously involved in getting this deal and it’s has been confirmed that a deal has been finalized between both teams and an announcement will be made soon.


Amid recent speculations linking Karim Benzema to a move to Manchester United or Arsenal, the French striker has refuted any claims of wanting to depart Al Ittihad.

Benzema, who joined Al Ittihad from Real Madrid in the summer of 2023 on a lucrative three-year deal worth £172 million annually, has faced rumors of discontent in Saudi Arabia. However, any potential departure could encounter significant obstacles, given the intricate approval process involving Al Ittihad’s coach Marcelo Gallardo, sporting director Roman Planes, and Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Sport.

Contrary to the circulating rumors, Benzema has not expressed any dissatisfaction or intention to leave Al Ittihad. The speculation gained momentum when he returned late from a trip to Mauritius, sparking reports of a ‘temporary’ desire to exit and planned discussions with the club’s administration following interest from Manchester United and Arsenal.

Benzema’s former club, Lyon, has also been linked to him, adding an additional layer to the potential move to the Premier League for the French striker, who enjoyed a prolific spell at Real Madrid, amassing 354 goals in 14 trophy-laden years.

Dismissing the rumors, Benzema stated, “It’s entirely false! The French media is at a loss for new ideas. Bigger is better.”

Despite the financial intricacies tied to Benzema’s salary, his addition could significantly bolster the goal-scoring capabilities of both struggling Manchester United, currently in ninth place in the Premier League, and Arsenal, facing challenges in maintaining their title aspirations.

With nine goals and five assists in 15 games for Al Ittihad, Benzema could offer a substantial boost to either club. However, Al Ittihad trails behind in the Saudi Pro League title race, with Al Hilal leading undefeated and holding a considerable points advantage over Benzema’s current team, underscoring the challenging journey they face.

As the transfer window unfolds, the uncertainty surrounding Benzema’s future will likely remain a focal point, with Manchester United and Arsenal potentially exploring the opportunity to secure the services of the prolific striker if conditions align favorably.
