A worldwide shock just happened with the news that Karim Benzema is leaving Real Madrid. The French striker is one of the most winning players in the history of the club, and his departure will be historic for all the cups and triumphs he has given over many years to his fans.

His destination seems to be the Middle East. He has several offers in leagues such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, so his salary would be very high and there would be no team in Europe that could compete against what the sheikhs can pay the big stars, beyond the fact that they are no longer young enough to last more years as a professional.

But Benzema's departure could be a sign that Real Madrid would be willing to go for any player who is in his prime in the world's top leagues, including the Premier League, where there is enough talent to feed Carlo Ancelotti's squad of the last few years.

A Chelsea player could be to blame for Benzema's departure from Real Madrid. The youngster was already in talks with the Spanish board and was looking for the Blues to let him leave at the end of this season, but remains under evaluation by Mauricio Pochettino.

Chelsea player to replace Benzema

Several newspapers and internet portals have reported that Kai Havertz is the name that will replace Karim Benzema in his departure to the Middle East. Only a few details and negotiations are missing, but the German is a priority for Fiorentino Perez for this summer which will be crazy in terms of transfers.
