The former agent of the Frenchman assures that the Real Madrid striker left his old home in 2009 with the idea of returning.
Karim Benzema defends the shirt of Real Madrid since 2009. The French lived more than a decade of consecration, with multiple titles between the national and international order; Even this Thursday he can add one more, with the coronation in La Liga, if he beats Villarreal. But what will become of the striker in the future, looking at his 32 years?
Although he has everything to be happy in the Spanish capital, that does not prevent him from thinking of a return to his old home. In fact, there is talk that it would be his medium-term goal. Linked to the merengue club until 2022, there is a possibility that it may return to Olympique Lyon, and this was made clear by his ex and renowned agent, Karim Djaziri.
“Today, with the situation in which he lives in Real, he lives up to what a soccer player wants. He plays in Real Madrid, he is very close to his coach (Zidane), adored by the public … This moment is not possible. Afterwards, since leaving Lyon, Karim has only one wish: to return to Lyon, “said the man who was the representative of the current white scorer in an interview with OL TV.
Likewise, in this approach, Benzema could return to the French club in a different role than that of the player. According to Djaziri, in turn, he is very interested in wearing the team jacket again: “It will be as a player … It is still a regret for Karim not to have gone any further in the Champons League. When he left, OL reached the semifinal It’s in his head, he told me he wants to come back. I think it’s possible. If he has legs and thinks it’s time to go and do something good, he will come back. If not as a player, I see him return to OL in another role. I know he really wants to. “
Benzema played five seasons in Lyon, between 2005 and 2009, before emigrating to Spain. At the French club he recorded 66 goals in all competitions.
