Dani Carvajal is finalizing a renewal of his Real Madrid contract until 2024, according to a report from MARCA.
The right back has been negotiating with the club for a number of weeks now and an agreement is imminent. The new contract term will see the Caternano stay at the club for another 4 years. Carvajal’s current deal expires in 2022. The two year extension will keep Carvajal at the club until he is 32-years-old.
Since returning home from Bayer Leverkusen in 2013, the right fullback has been a main stay in the starting eleven. Competition has come and gone — Arbeloa, Danilo, Achraf, and Odriozola — but none have been able to dislodge the academy product from his starting birth. At 28-years-old and with countless trophies under his belt, Carvajal is seen as a heavyweight in the locker room. Even during his academy days, the fullback has always carried leadership attributes. Carvajal will be expected to continue in that vein and eventually move in as one of the four captains of the team once Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, and Marcelo begin their transitions out of the club.
This past summer Carvajal was given the ultimate vote of confidence by his boyhood club and by his manager, Zinedine Zidane. Achraf Hakimi was not guaranteed a starting role despite his emergence under Lucien Farve at Borussia Dortmund the prior two seasons. The apparent rejection led to his departure for €40 million to Inter Milan. It has been Carvajal who has been trusted and now his good performances, professional attitude, and undying love for the club will see him rewarded with another extension.
