Claudio Marchisio revealed that Karim Benzema could’ve moved to Juventus in 2010 – ‘Karim was very close to joining Juve’.
“Karim was very close to joining Juve that year, but unfortunately it didn’t happen. There was definitely an opportunity, though,” told Cronache di Spogliatoio.
“He wasn’t doing so well at Real Madrid, and the club was choosing whether to sell him or Higuain. They both ended up staying and Higuain left for Napoli a few years later,” he added.
“It’s true, Benzema was close to moving to Juventus when Ciro Ferrara was the coach,” the former Juventus midfielder Marchisio said about the Real Madrid forward.
Incidentally, Benzema recently talked about a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo, currently at Juventus, at Real Madrid.
