To be the most decorated player in Real Madrid’s history is no mean feat. With 24 trophies won at the club, Marcelo holds that title and deservedly so.

Over the past 15 years, the Brazilian grew into one of the most dependable faces in the famous white colours. As managers came and went, he remained one of the few constants in the team and created a legacy at the club.

However, Los Blancos decided against renewing his contract at the end of last season. The Champions League final was Marcelo’s last game for the club of his dreams and he is now set to turn a fresh leaf in his book.

According to reports from MARCA, the Brazilian wants to organize a farewell party for all his coaches, teammates, board members, singers, actors, friends, and even media acquaintances.

The program is scheduled to take place at the Zuma Madrid restaurant on Sunday from 8:30 PM.

Several teammates including Vinicius Jr, Dani Ceballos, Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, and Nacho Fernandez are among the confirmed attendees. Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Carlos are expected to attend the function too.

Marcelo has made no official announcement about the next phase of his career. It is speculated that he could join Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Lig, but Marseille and clubs in Qatar have also been linked with his signature.

Last season, the 34-year-old played only 12 league games for Los Blancos and started just five. In that duration, he provided two assists and failed to find the back of the net.

If there’s one thing to note about Karim Benzema’s career trajectory, it is that he has only improved over time.

Just last season, the French international enjoyed his finest individual campaign till date, with 44 goals and 15 assists in all competitions.

However, a question mark lingers around the club captain’s future, with his current contract set to expire next summer. A new update has emerged around the Los Blancos legend’s contractual situation, which is set to put a smile on every Madridista’s face.

As per the latest information provided by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano on the ‘Here We Go’ podcast, Karim Benzema’s contract renewal with the European champions is imminent.

Despite turning 35 in December this year, the veteran remains in the conversation for being the best striker in the world, alongside Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski.

So much so that the five-time Champions League winner is the favourite to win his first-ever Ballon d’Or later this year.

Whilst Benzema has suffered a knee injury this term, he has still managed to register three goals in five league starts.

With all signs pointing to the Los Merengues icon still being at the peak of his powers, it only makes sense why the club are intending on tying him down to a brand-new deal.

Alongside Vinicius Jr., Karim Benzema has managed to form the deadliest forward duo in Europe since the start of the 2021/22 campaign. And considering Real Madrid’s aim to triumph on multiple fronts for the upcoming seasons, it is vital that the experienced goalscorer stays put at the club.

Despite the successful coup of Aurelien Tchouameni, handing Benzema a fresh contract may be the club’s signing of the season.
