Karim Benzema is currently the best player in the world but at 34, Benzema is enjoying the final moments of his wonderful career.
Realistically, Real Madrid should be able to get at least three more seasons of the incredible player we witnessed this just concluded season, which would mean by 2025, we would need that potent number 9 to replace him, or he may go on to be one of those evergreen strikers and be able to deliver for the next 5 or 6 years, after all CR7 is still delivering at 37 and Zlatan at 40 is still delivering too.
As long as he is able to maintain shape, bangs in goals and shows no sign of slowing down, we would not have to worry about bringing any other big name strikers in three years. But if reverse is the case, then securing Benzema’s replacement would be very necessary, most especially if Luka Jovic fails to step up and deliver.
Mbappe not signing for Madrid this season is a big disappointment for many reasons, but Real Madrid have the quality, finance and history to continue dominating Europe and the world. Real Madrid is the greatest club in football history, there is no player in the world who does not want to come to Madrid, and any player who turns Madrid down at any point should never be paid attention to again.
If by 2025, Mbappe decides to move on from PSG and Real Madrid for some reasons happen to be interested, then it must be a case of him desperately needing to come to Madrid. If its the opposite, then a quite a lot has gone wrong.
