Real Madrid ready to renew star forward’s contract amid Mbappe transfer speculations

French forward Karim Benzema is reportedly ready to sign a new contract extension with Real Madrid CF. The Frenchman has just returned to the Spanish capital, after having been stuck in Lyon to isolate after testing positive for Covid-19 last month.

Benzema represented France in the European Championship earlier this summer, and took a short holiday break after the tournament. He was on his way back to Madrid for pre-season training with Los Blancos when he was diagnosed with Covid-19.

He has since recovered and has rejoined his teammates at Valdebebas. Football España reports that apart from his work on the pitch, he is also busy working behind the scenes with Real Madrid officials. They are negotiating the terms of a new contract, which is expected to be signed in a matter of days.
