Benzema Benched: PIF Fund Puts Brakes on His European Future

Benzema’s future remains uncertain, with reports from France suggesting the player may stay in the Saudi Pro League.

Benzema’s future continues to hang in the balance, with French media insisting that he could yet remain in the Saudi Pro League.

According to French publication L’Equipe, the French forward reportedly at odds with Al Ittihad would prefer to return to Europe for the second half of the season. However, the Saudi sovereign wealth fund PIF, which oversees the four major clubs in the country, does not plan to oblige him.

“Benzema wants to return to Europe but it appears the Saudi PIF, handling the nation’s top clubs, do not intend to grant his wishes,” claims L’Equipe.
