A Toronto FC fan, @M3L0C, recently took to social media with an intriguing suggestion for the club's next big signing. Amidst reports of Karim Benzema's dissatisfaction in Saudi Arabia, the fan proposed, "@TorontoFC this is who you sign for $12M per season. Heck, sign him for the price of both of the Italians! #TFCLive."
The context lies in Benzema's unexpected move to the Saudi Arabian league last summer, turning down a contract extension with Real Madrid. However, six months into the new adventure, signs of regret are surfacing. Recent reports highlight the striker's apparent discomfort and struggle to adjust to the unique environment in the Middle East.
According to Defensa Central, the leaders of Real Madrid do not quite welcome the idea of recovering it. Such a sudden return would mean acknowledging that letting him go was a mistake on their part.
While the financial implications and logistics of such a move remain uncertain, the mere suggestion opens up a realm of possibilities for Toronto FC's transfer strategies. Do you think Benzema could adapt to the team?
