Why Al-Ittihad striker Karim Benzema is returning to former club Real Madrid?

Karim Benzema, the prolific striker currently playing for Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia, has surprisingly returned to his former club Real Madrid’s training facilities. While headlines might spark rumors of a reunion, the reason behind Benzema’s return is far more practical – injury recovery.

According to a statement from Al-Ittihad, Benzema will undergo medical examinations at Real Madrid’s state-of-the-art Valdebebas training complex. This collaboration between the two clubs allows Benzema access to the expertise and facilities he needs to recover from an undisclosed injury sustained this season.

A Temporary Return

It’s important to clarify that Benzema’s return is solely for medical purposes. There have been no official talks regarding a permanent transfer back to Real Madrid. Benzema signed a lucrative contract with Al-Ittihad in January 2024, and it’s highly likely he’ll see out his commitment there.

A Sign of Goodwill?

This collaboration between Al-Ittihad and Real Madrid demonstrates a positive relationship between the two clubs. By allowing Benzema access to their facilities, Real Madrid shows a willingness to help a former player, potentially fostering good will between the organizations.

Focus on Recovery

For Benzema, the priority remains regaining full fitness. A recurring injury has hampered his performances for Al-Ittihad, and a successful recovery will be crucial for him to rediscover his goalscoring form.

The Future Unwritten

While a permanent return to Real Madrid seems unlikely at this point, Benzema’s future remains to be seen. His performance after recovery and Al-Ittihad’s ambitions will likely play a role in determining his next move.
