Former Balon d'Or winner does not want to continue with Al Ittihad

Karim Benzema's lawyer, Hugues Vigier, revealed the reason why his client did not return to Al Ittihad after the holiday ended. The Saudi Pro League competition is currently enjoying the holiday. Al Ittihad players used this moment to go on holiday and enjoy this time with their loved ones. Unfortunately, the 36-year-old star striker did not return to the club until the specified time limit. As a result, coach Marcelo Gallardo did not take him to the training camp in Dubai.

From there, Benzema's future became a big question mark, it is said that he could return to Europe. Former Real Madrid's lawyer, Hugues Vigier, then revealed the reason why his client had not returned to Al Ittihad. He admitted that Benzema was caught in a storm during the holidays. "He has experienced ups and downs in his sporting life, perhaps this period was less prosperous. He was also injured," said the lawyer to BFMTV.

"He was away for a few days and was kept away from the team in Saudi Arabia because of the typhoon (in Mauritius). He then returned to Saudi Arabia," he admitted. The news that Karim Benzema would be leaving immediately made some clubs in Europe alert. Some of the clubs are said to come from England such as Chelsea and Arsenal. Both need new strikers who have proven their abilities. There are also rumours of interest from Manchester United, they now only have Rasmus Hojlund and will release Anthony Martial.
