“When I had a conversation with my family that I was signing with Saudi Arabia, they were all very happy and here I am. To me it’s where I want to be.”

Benzema, who joins the current Saudi League champions, wants to win more trophies with them.

“I hope for my new club, what I’ll be able to bring is my football and most importantly to be able to win titles. It’s a new chapter for me and I would like to further advance the club. It’s a club with a lot of passion”

Benzema is the second former Ballon winner to join the Saudi League after Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It’s important also that Cristiano Ronaldo is in Saudi Arabia because he’s a very big player. He brings a lot to the game in this country and that will further elevate their playing level. So it’s important to show that Saudi football can have a global impact.”

Al-Ittihad has reportedly also signed N’Golo Kante from Chelsea though an official announcement has not been made yet and more top stars being targeted by the Middle Eastern country.
