Karim Benzema presented a departing gift to club president Florentino Perez, after his last game as a Real Madrid player.

Benzema will leave Real Madrid after 14 years, and would make a move to Saudi Arabia, where he has been offered a mind-blowing deal.

The Frenchman bagged 354 goals in 648 appearances for the club.

Benzema will leave as Real’s second-best ever scorer, only behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

Benzema presented a gift to Florentino Perez after the game – a signed No.25 jersey.

Karim Benzema is the joint most decorated player to ever wear the Real Madrid shirt, alongside Marcelo. The two captains have 25 trophies. That’s exactly the number that appeared on the jersey Benzema gifted to Florentino Perez.

“To my presi, KB9,” the message on the shirt reads.
