But what can be said of Benzema, is that he has been loyal to the Los Blancos cause.
Whether he has been needed from the start of a game or come on the field from the bench, he has delivered time after time.
There has been no shortage of clubs trying to pry him away from the Santiago Bernabeu, but he has stuck with them through it all.
The powers that be at Real, prompted by their manager Zinedine Zidane have realized how essential a player like Benzema is to the cause.
Benzema turn 32 this year, but that does not scare Madrid.
