Real Madrid has agreed to a contract extension with right back Dani Carvajal that will take him through June 2022, according to Real Madrid’s official team website.
Real Madrid will hold a ceremony on Monday to mark Carvajal’s new deal. Carvajal will appear in a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu that afternoon.
The 25-year-old is currently in his fifth year with the historic Spanish club.
He has made seven appearances this season and has not yet scored a goal, but goal-scoring is not Carvajal’s job, as his career-high for goals in a single season is two.
Carvajal, who joined Real Madrid’s youth system when he was 10 years old, got his start with Real Madrid B, the squad’s reserve team, back in 2010.
The Leganes, Spain native became team captain in his first season, making 30 appearances and finding the back of the net once.
Overall, Carvajal spent two seasons with Real Madrid’s reserve unit, taking the pitch 38 times in the latter year and scoring two goals.
He then proceeded to sign with Bayer Leverkusen in July 2012 after not being called up to Real Madrid’s first team after two years. He inked a five-year deal with the club for a transfer fee of five million euros. Real Madrid also had a 6.5 million euro buy-back option on Carvajal after the first year of the contract.
Carvajal played in 32 contests for the German club, scoring once.
After that season, Real Madrid exercised its buy-back option on Carvajal and added him to the first team.
Carvajal has been a regular for the team ever since.
