Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has been confirmed to leave the club at the end of the season.

The announcement has come as a shock to many fans, who have grown to love the Frenchman’s contributions to the team over the years.

Benzema has been a key player for Real Madrid since joining the club in 2009.

He has scored over 280 goals in his 12-year stint with the Spanish giants, helping them win numerous titles including four Champions League trophies.

The news of Benzema’s departure has also prompted an emotional response from his teammate Vinícius Júnior.

In a heartfelt message on social media, the Brazilian winger expressed his gratitude towards Benzema for being the first to receive him when he arrived in Madrid in 2018.

“When the boy from São Gonçalo, too shy, arrived in Madrid in 2018, you were the first to receive me. I’ll never forget,” Vinícius wrote.

“I grew up with you. We won Spain, Europe and the World together. I was able to applaud his Ballon D’Or. You will be greatly missed.”

Benzema’s departure will undoubtedly leave a void in Real Madrid’s squad, and the club will need to act fast to find a suitable replacement.

The Frenchman’s departure comes as part of a wider exodus from the club, with other key players such as Eden Hazard, Marcos Asensio, and Nacho Fernandez also set to leave.

Real Madrid will be hoping to rebuild their squad ahead of the new season and continue to compete at the highest level.
