Christian Benteke has regained prominence at Crystal Palace in recent weeks as he has started in four of the last seven league matches.
The striker, however, has not be able to shine, managing only a goal and an assist in this calendar year.
With a contract expiring in the summer, it’s not clear where the 30-year-old will play next season.
On January 21st, Het Laatste Nieuws reported the Eagles have no intention to offer the Belgium international a new contract and will say ‘goodbye’ to him at the end of the season.
In the past, there have been rumours of interest from the Jupiler Pro League, but a deal never took shape, partly due to the attacker’s high wages.
Voetbal24 now takes a look if there is any chance of Benteke to return to his homeland in the next market.
‘There may be opportunities for the most ambitious teams’ in Belgium to sign the former Liverpool man, if he’s available on a free transfer.
According to the report, ‘it is clear’ that only Club Brugge will be in ‘pole position’ to acquire the Palace player’s services if an opportunity arises for Roy Hodgson’s man to return to Belgium.
Benteke’s agent Kismet Eris has also noted that only Club Brugge can pay for his client in Belgium.
However, having already invested on Bas Dost in the winter market, we’ll have to wait and see whether Club Brugge still want to get bring in Benteke in the summer.
