Monday, Spanish defender Dani Carvajal signed a contract extension with Spanish capital club Real Madrid, the club announced via their official website. The new contract runs until June 2022.
Now-25-year-old Carvajal joined Los Blancos from German club Bayer Leverkusen in summer 2013. Since then the Spanish international has won eleven titles, including three UEFA Champions League titles, three UEFA Super Cups, two FIFA Club World Cups and one each of LaLiga trophy, Supercopa de España, and Copa del Rey. Carvajal graduated from Real Madrid’s academy, and since joining Real Madrid’s first team, the Spanish right-back has played more than 160 official games for Madrid, scoring four, and assisting 24, goals in total.

The new deal sees his release clause rise to an eye-watering £308million. A product of the club’s academy, Carvajal left Real in 2012 to sign a five-year contract at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, only for Real to activate an option to re-sign the defender a year later. Carvajal re-joined Madrid for a reported €6.5 million at the beginning of the 2013-14 campaign after impressing in a lone season at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.
The 25-year-old has been a regular presence under Zinedine Zidane and has gone on to win 13 caps for Spain since debuting in 2014.
Per the previous contract, Carvajal was tied to Real Madrid until June 2020. Last week, Real Madrid announced Brazilian full back Marcelo and Spanish midfielder Isco signed contract extensions until June 2022. They join other Real Madrid players including German midfielder Toni Kroos and Welsh midfielder Gareth Bale whose contracts run until June 2022. Kroos and Bale signed contract extensions last year.
