Real Madrid announced that they have extended a three-year contract with Dani Carvajal. The former Bayern Leverkusen defender has signed a new deal with Los Blancos that will keep him at the club until 2025.
Last season the Spanish defender played 13 La Liga games and provided two assists. The previous contract of the 29-year-old was due to expire at the end of June 2022, but the club has now ensured that he will stay at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2025.
Next summer the right-back would have become a free agent had not the club signed a new contract. Los Blancos were keen to avoid a repeat of the Raphael Varane situation when they were forced to sell to Manchester United amid the threat of losing the center-back for free next summer.
On Tuesday, Real Madrid reached an agreement for Raphael Varane with Manchester United. The World Cup winner will now undergo medical in the coming days making a move to England. United agreed to a €50 million football transfer fee to bring Varane to Old Trafford.
In the 2020/21 season, Carvajal was featured in 13 La Liga games but did score any goal. However, since arriving at the Spanish club in 2013 he has appeared in 199 games and netted 4 goals. Although the Spaniard has spent most of his football career at Real Madrid, he had played a year for Bayern Leverkusen also. In the 2012/13 season, Dani scored a goal in 32 competitive games for the Bundesliga club.
Real Madrid finished as La Liga runner-ups the last term behind winners Atletico Madrid and faced elimination in the Champions League in a match against the European champions – Chelsea.
