 Karim Benzema is said to have made a move to clarify the future story when Real Madrid wants to recruit Erling Haaland.

Real Madrid are one of many top European clubs linked with Borussia Dortmund, who has scored 16 goals in 14 Bundesliga appearances this season. However, that has raised alarm bells for Karim Benzema, the number one scorer at the Bernabeu thanks to 17 goals in 21 La Liga appearances.

Haaland’s appearance can affect Benzema’s playing frequency, so this makes the French star doubt about his future. Therefore, the former Lyon player decided to take action to clarify the situation in case Haaland really plays for Real.

 Benzema wants to clarify the situation when Real has ambitions to buy Haaland.

According to Onze, Benzema has asked to speak with Florentino Perez next month to discuss his future amid Real Madrid’s interest in signing Haaland. The Frenchman is concerned that his desire to sign the 2000-born striker could get him kicked out of the club and a meeting has now been held to discuss that matter.

Unlike Kylian Mbappe, who can spread the wings, Haaland can only kick the center position. If Carlo Ancelotti uses Haaland, Benzema can start on the bench.
