Robert Lewandowski, his humble adversary, was wearing a cheap £52 Casio watch on his wrist.

According to the Spanish publication Marca, Benzema’s jewelry is valued close to 500,000 pounds.

On Monday night, the 34-year-old looked sharp as he flew to France for the awards ceremony. He arrived without his girlfriend Jordan Ozuna.

When Benzema of Real Madrid won the Ballon d’Or, he had the opportunity to display his posh Richard Mille watch live on stage.

It marked the end of a spectacular trip for Karim Benzema, who had previously been barred from the national team and put on trial for his alleged involvement in sex tape blackmailing Mathieu Valbuena.

The Richard Mille RM 65-01 timepiece he was wearing is described as “the most intricate timepiece ever to leave the Richard Mille factories,” and as a result, it is quite expensive.

But with Benzema’s staggering weekly salary of £275k, as reported by Salary Sport, it would only take him under two weeks to save enough for the watch.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the French striker has a net worth of £62.5 million, so he made sure his jewellery stood out at the formal occasion.

Rival for the Ballon d’Or and Barcelona’s Lewandowski chose to keep things straightforward.

Lewandowski arrived with his wife Anna sporting a £52 Casio watch.

Although he took a wage reduction to move to Barcelona, the 34-year-old dessert enthusiast still reportedly makes £150,000 per week.

He is said to have a net worth of £75 million, which is more than Benzema, and could easily afford to purchase a watch that is on par with Benzema’s.

The two competed against one another on the field last weekend before doing so once more the following day for the Ballon d’Or prize.

And Benzema triumphed on both occasions.

Sunday’s El Clasico saw Real Madrid defeat Barcelona 3-1, although Lewandowski could only manage to place fourth overall for the coveted award.

Despite winning the Muller Trophy, which is given to the player with the most goals scored in a given year.

Benzema: The evolution of a world-class No 9

Karim Benzema, a striker for Real Madrid and France, was named the winner of the Ballon d’Or on Monday. Benzema’s former team-mate and childhood friend Anthony Mounier, who made 21 league appearances for Lyon between 2007-09 said;

“When Karim Benzema started playing Champions League games for Lyon, his number was 44.”

“Once, he came back to our room after a game. He was 18 and he said, ‘They’re making me play with this number, I can’t play with 44’. I said, ‘Bro, you’re playing Champions League, what are you talking about?’. He said, ‘I want to play with the No 9’. So he started giving me his No 44 shirt after games because he was determined to be a No 9. That was his favourite number.”

Benzema has aspirations to be one of the top forwards in the world since he was a small child.

Mounier who is currently a player for the Greek team Kallithea, can’t help but smile as he thinks of the Frenchman’s ascent to the top.

This is the tale of how a shy young man from Lyon developed into one of the game’s most lethal attackers while simultaneously losing nearly six years of his international career due to a blackmail case involving a teammate from France.

Robert Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski, a professional football player from Poland who now captains his country’s team and plays as a striker for La Liga Club Barcelona, was born on August 21, 1988.

Lewandowski is regarded as one of the greatest strikers of all time and one of the most successful players in Bundesliga history because of his positioning, technique, and finishing.

For club and country, he has scored more than 600 goals in his senior career.

The judges for the prized accolade given to the finest player in the world last year added a new category to determine the Best Attacker. 

Before leaving for Barcelona last season, the Poland international went on to record an incredible 50 goals across all competitions for Bayern Munich.

Although he has already scored 14 goals for the Spanish powerhouses, Haaland, who has had a great start to his Manchester City career, is still six goals ahead of him.

“The season is very long. For me it’s also a new chapter with Barcelona and since the first day, I am feeling very well in this club. I can see it is there for me, the big challenge. I feel very well, I see that with my teammates that we have such big potential,” Lewandowski said.

“I have the opportunity to score a lot of goals and I am sure that altogether we are working on this. This is football. You have to be always ready. I know that the new competition is also coming but still, I am still here and I didn’t said my final word yet.”

After the iconic Bayern Munich striker Gerd Muller, whose Bundesliga goals record Lewandowski broke last season, the Best Striker trophy is now known. Muller passed away last year, and in his victory speech, Lewandowski paid homage to the legendary German player.
