It is confirmed, Karim Benzema could have left Real Madrid for Juventus. Claudio Marchisio, formerly of the club, indeed assured it during an interview granted to the Youtube channel “Cronache di Spogliatoio”. According to him, Karim Benzema almost signed for Juventus Turin in 2009.
” That’s right, Benzema was close to Juventus the year Ciro Ferrara was coach, revealed Marchisio, who arguably alludes to the 2010 winter transfer window as Ferrara took the door at the end of January, a few months after his appointment. He hadn’t been good at Real and they had to choose between selling him or Gonzalo Higuain. In the end, they kept both, but Karim was really close to joining us at Juve that year. Unfortunately, that did not happen. “, did he declare.
Under contract until 2022 with Real Madrid, the trend regarding Karim Benzema would tend towards an extension at Casa Blanca.
