The Saudi Arabia Pro League is becoming a retirement home for world-class players who have played the game to the highest level of their careers.

The latest player to make a move to the Arab nation is Real Madrid’s former player, Karim Benzema. The French International explained his reason for joining the club in his first interview as an Al-Ittihad player.

Al Ittihad is a new challenge for me. It’s a good league and there are many good players. Cristiano Ronaldo is already here, he is a friend who shows that Saudi Arabia is starting to get ahead and I am here to win as I did in Europe.

Benzema signed a three-year deal that will keep him at the club until 2026, he is expected to earn €200 million every year. Lionel Messi and N’Golo Kante are the next set of players that could be heading to Saudi Arabia.
