According to reports, Karim Benzema has complete freedom to choose a club and city of his choice if he moves to Saudi Arabia. The Frenchman is on the verge of announcing his exit from Real Madrid, with Al Ittihad very close to signing him.

One of the contenders that has emerged as a prime option in recent hours is Al-Ittihad. As revealed by Al Ittihad aggregator Itti Mania, the Saudi-based club’s player Helder Costa openly spoke about the possibility of Karim Benzema joining and even went on to indirectly confirm the move.

“We are very excited about the arrival of the Balon d’Or winner (Benzema).”

Further, a fan of Nuno Espirito Santo’s side showed an edit of Benzema donning the club’s yellow-and-black colours during their title celebrations earlier this week.

Al-Ittihad currently sit atop the Saudi Professional League standings with 69 points in 29 games. They are five points above second-placed Al-Nassr, and with one game to go, already have the title in their bag.

The Saudi-based team has scored 58 goals and conceded just 13 in their campaign so far and has even qualified for the AFC Champions League. If Benzema is to join the club next season, he could well make them the favourites to lift the continental championship.

With Benzema’s announcement imminent, officials hope to complete his move to the Saudi league as early as tomorrow. The veteran will still have the luxury to opt for a destination of his choice, but Al-Ittihad’s open flirting with Benzema could imply that he has already made his pick.

In 23 La Liga appearances for Los Blancos this season, the Frenchman has scored 18 goals and provided three assists.
