    by  • September 19, 2017 • Football

    Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema has reportedly agreed to extend his stay at the Bernabeu by a further four years as the Frenchman becomes the latest player to commit his future to the European champions.

    Benzema, 29, has already stated in the past few weeks that he is happy at the Spanish capital, despite being repeatedly linked with a move away.

    Benzema’s teammates Isco, Marcelo and Dani Carvajal extended their contracts in recent times, now The Sun claims that the France international will follow the trend on Thursday when an official announcement is expected to be made by the La Liga champions.

    He is currently under contract until 2019, and is understood to earn around £150,000-a-week.

    Benzema joined Madrid from Lyon eight years ago, and has since gone on to score 181 goals for Los Blancos in all competitions.
