Karim Benzema is fit for action according to Real Madrid's medical servics at Sanitas La Moraleja Hospital. Benzema passed all his tests with flying colors and has been cleared to sign his six-year deal with Real Madrid later this afternoon.
The French stiker arrived at Sanitas La Moraleja Hospital at approximately noon, where several members of the media waited to snap their first images and fans requested autographs.
The medical checkup confirmed that the player is in perfect health, which should come as no surprise being that Benzema is only 21 years old and has never suffered a severe injury. Real Madrid's medical services performed blood and urine tests, an electrocardiogram, and echocardiogram, and MRI, x-rays and a biomechanics exam.
With the results in hand, Chief of the medical services team, Doctor Carlos Diez said that, "the player is in perfect shape to play sports at an elite level" and that Benzema "arrived in great form after his summer holiday." The next stop on today's agenda is none other than Benzema's future home, the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
