Karim Benzema, the notable forward for Al Ittihad, is making a temporary return to Spain, but his trip is focused on recovery rather than play.

According to a recent announcement from the Saudi club, Real Madrid will provide medical assistance for Benzema's ongoing injury issues.

"The club has been in contact with Real Madrid, and we have arranged for Benzema to receive further medical examinations at the Real Madrid clinic. This facility is where he was treated throughout his tenure with the club, making it the ideal place for his care," Al Ittihad stated. "Benzema has already traveled to Madrid and is expected to return to Saudi Arabia next week."

Benzema transferred to Al Ittihad in June 2023, and his debut season in Saudi Arabia has been turbulent, marred by a series of injuries that have affected his playtime and performance. Despite these challenges, Benzema's impact on the field remains significant. In 33 matches this season, he has managed to score 16 goals and provide nine assists, demonstrating his enduring skill and influence in the game.

This ongoing relationship with Real Madrid highlights the strong ties Benzema still maintains with his former club, where he spent many successful years. It also underscores the Saudi club's commitment to providing top-tier care for its star player, ensuring he receives the best possible treatment to aid his recovery and return to full fitness. The collaboration between Al Ittihad and Real Madrid in managing Benzema's treatment reflects a notable cooperation between clubs across different leagues, aimed at the welfare of the player.
