Aged 32 and under contract with the Spanish giants until 2022, Benzema is beginning to consider his options post retirement - with coaching on the agenda.
And he admits coaching Madrid would be an ultimate ambition.
"Coach Real Madrid? Why not. Afterwards, when I say 'why not', it's a dream like everyone has," he said.
"But already, I'm going to play my football and then we'll see if I can coach a team."
