Karim Benzema might join Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr before the January transfer window ends, reuniting with his former Real Madrid teammate.
Benzema, unhappy at Al-Ittihad, might move to a Riyadh-based club. This sparks speculation about reuniting with Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr.
Al-Ittihad coach Marcelo Gallardo has sidelined the veteran striker. The Jeddah-based club is willing to let him go on loan within the Saudi Pro League. Al-Hilal is also interested.
Benzema and Ronaldo played together at Real Madrid for nine years from 2009 to 2018. They won numerous trophies, including four Champions League titles.
The ex-Ballon d’Or winner was expected to return to Europe, with links to Manchester United. However, financial constraints ruled out January signings.
