The tendency of soccer stars to move to Saudi Arabia has become stronger in recent years.

However, this season, due to injuries and sluggishness, he did not perform as well as expected, and when a good offer came from the Saudi club, he decided to leave Real Madrid. Eventually, Al Ittihad officially announced the signing of Benzema on the 7th (Korean time).
