Can Benzema Surpass Cristiano Ronaldo As the All-Time Real Madrid Goalscorer Before Retirement?

Benzema is currently the fifth top scorer of real madrid. The French striker have scored 272 goals in 545 games for real madrid. If he scores 18 goals more he would equal the all time fourth top scorer, Santillana who scored 290 goals from 1971 to 1988. Karim benzema also need to score 26 goals so that he could equal Alfredo di Stefano's record. Di Stefano scored 308 goals for real Madrid in 11 years.

However, Karim Benzema needs to score over 170 goals for him to be able to surpass Cristiano Ronaldo as the all-time Real Madrid goalscorer. This figure is very high and it is likely impossible that the French striker would achieve this record. This is because he have few years left to play before he would be sold. With real madrid keen on signing erling Haaland or kylian Mbappe, we could see Karim Benzema career at real Madrid come to abrupt end. The only way Karim benzema could achieve this record faster before he departs madrid is by scoring 50 goals per season. In that way real madrid would consider to renew his contract and allow him play for them.
