New Five Year Deal For Marcelo

New Five Year Deal For Marcelo

Ahead of the return to the Champions League, when Real Madrid saw off the challenge of Apoel Nicosia, a contract extension for Marcelo was confirmed.

The full back, who arrived from Fluminese in 2006, will now have the chance to add plenty of further appearances to the 406 he's made for Real so far as Marcelo's new five year deal will take him through until 2022.

Marcelo's new deal could, in effect, tie him to Los Blancos for the remainder of his career?

A statement on read: 'Real Madrid C. F. and Marcelo have agreed to extend the player's contract, which will see him remain at the club until 30 June 2022.

'Tomorrow, Thursday, at 2pm, Marcelo will appear before the media in the press room of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.'

During his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, Marcelo has scored 28 goals, which have played their part in Real winning the Champions League three times, La Liga four times and the Copa del Rey and FIFA Club World Cup twice.

This is great news for the Brazilian international, obviously Real too, but Marcelo didn't prepare for this in an ideal way as he was sent off in Saturday's draw with Levante, which will mean the left back is suspended for the trip to Real Sociedad on Sunday and the visit of Real Betis to follow.
