Karim Benzema, a French striker who spent 14 years with Real Madrid, has officially joined Saudi Arabia’s reigning champions Al Ittihad. He is now the newest soccer star to join the league as a result of this move. Benzema will now have the chance to take on Cristiano Ronaldo, a former teammate who joined Al Nassr earlier this year.

Al Ittihad shared a video on Twitter of Benzema signing a contract through 2026, though no specific financial information was provided. While playing for Real Madrid, Benzema enjoyed great success, winning several championships, including five Champions League trophies. He expressed his excitement about performing in Jeddah, where Al Ittihad is headquartered. In his final match for Madrid, he scored in a 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao to say goodbye to the supporters.

Al Ittihad, who overtook Ronaldo’s former Riyadh squad Al-Nassr, won the Saudi league for the first time since 2009. Benzema will play alongside top league scorer and Moroccan striker Abderrazak Hamdallah on a team coached by Nuno Espirito Santo.
