David Alaba, his teammate for the past two seasons, tweeted, ‘Mon frero @Benzema. It has been an honour to play with you for the past two seasons. You are a special player and the best striker in the world. You deserve everything that you have been awarded. But most importantly, you are an amazing person and friend. I wish you all the best…’

A Legacy to Remember

Benzema’s departure is a significant moment for Real Madrid. His contribution to the club has been immense, and he will be remembered as one of the club’s greatest players. His departure also marks the end of an era for Real Madrid, as he joins Mariano Diaz and Eden Hazard on the released list.
